    Everyone at Easter is sure to enjoy the chutney, honey and mustard glaze on this ham. 

    Prep: 10 minutes Roast: 1 hour 30 minutes at 325° F Roast: 25 minutes at 400° F

    Ingredients:
    1 3 to 4-pound boneless cooked ham
    1 9-ounce jar mango chutney (3/4 cup)
    2 tablespoons honey
    1 tablespoon stone-ground mustard
    2 pounds fresh asparagus spears, trimmed
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    Salt and ground black pepper
    Fresh mint leaves

    Directions:
    1. Preheat oven to 325° F. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Insert an oven-going meat thermometer into center of ham. Roast, uncovered, for 1-1/2 hours.

    2. Meanwhile, for glaze, in a small bowl stir together the chutney, honey, and mustard. Using kitchen scissors, snip any large pieces of fruit in the mixture.

    3. Spoon about 1/2 cup of the glaze over the ham. Roast, uncovered, for 15 minutes more or until thermometer registers 140° F. Remove from oven and cover with foil. Increase oven temperature to 400° F.  Arrange asparagus in a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Drizzle asparagus with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper; stir to coat. Roast, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until crisp-tender, stirring once.

    4. Serve ham with remaining chutney mixture and asparagus. Garnish with fresh mint. Makes 8 servings (4 ounces ham per serving, plus leftovers); asparagus and glaze serve 8.
