It’s finally Spring Time!
When I think of Spring Time I think of Easter and the excitement to once again spend time with all of my family and friends.
My mom always made Easter such a special holiday when I was little, as Easter is known as the Italian version of Thanksgiving; She loved Spring time because the flowers were blooming and the birds were chirping, and since the weather was so nice, we would always have our Easter dinner outside. She would start early in the morning cooking a ham and all the sides. I remember waking up to my stomach growling at the wonderful smells that came from our kitchen.
But, before dinner ever started there was a neighborhood Easter egg hunt that spanned across 3 neighbor’s yards. The plastic eggs were filled to the brim with chocolate candy and small toys. If you were one of the lucky ones, you found the golden egg that was full of cold hard cash.
When I was in my mid 20’s Easter became my favorite holiday for a whole different reason, Easter Sunday is the day I met my Handsome (that story at a later date).
Now that I have a family of my own, my goal is to make sure both my family and friends alike feel as special as possible at my Easter dinner. And one of the ways I plan on showing them how much I care is by serving them a CUREMASTER RESERVE® Premium Spiral Sliced Ham.
For over half a century they have perfected the art of making ham. Curemaster Reserve uses the finest cuts. Each ham is hand trimmed and hardwood smoked. The entire process is overseen by the Curemaster himself, Brian Hendrickson. Since 1963 there have only been 7 Curemasters (can you imagine the pressure of that job?).
They make it so easy to get one of their exclusive small batch hams. See how here
I chose the Vermont Maple Ham along with the Apple Cider Bourbon Glaze here is where you make your selection.
There are 5 different varieties of gourmet ham to choose from including Camp Sugar Rubbed, Brown Sugar, Clover Honey, and Double Smoked. The other Glaze flavors are Brown Sugar Sriracha, Pineapple Ginger, Crunchy Brown Sugar, Honey Dijon, and Cranberry Chipotle. The combinations are endless! To see a detail of each flavor click here. When you check it out make sure you take a look at the Glaze Flights. I’m definitely going to order one of those next time.
Once you order your ham the hard work is over, there are no long lines to stand in because your ham arrives right to your front door (mine arrived in 2 days). I was so worried that I wasn’t going to be home when my ham arrived, but no worries there either. It arrives safely inside an insulated cooler with 4 freezer packs. The ham itself is so beautifully packaged, no tin foil here. Learn more about their decades old craft.
The directions come in a booklet with a few ham recipes (just in case you have leftovers). It really is super easy, just heat the ham up, add the glaze and serve. The smell that wafts though the air while it’s heating up will have your mouth-watering and your tummies growling, just like when I was a kid.
I definitely recommend the CUREMASTER RESERVE® Ham if you want your guests to feel special at your Easter dinner.

**Thank you to the wonderful people at Curemaster Reserve. They were very kind and sent me my own ham to try. The ease of ordering and the delicious taste (Really, like no other ham I’ve ever had) will definitely have me buying one for every holiday from now on!
Until Next Time… Happy Easter!
