Easy Cherry Basil Glazed Ham


* 2 Tbsp of butter, divided
* 1 (1 lb.) center cut ham slice, cooked
* 1 (15 oz.) can of dark sweet cherries, pitted, juice reserved
* 2 tsp cornstarch
* 1/2 tsp dried basil or 1 tsp fresh chopped basil


1. Place 1 tablespoon of the butter into a large skillet over medium heat and heat until butter is melted.
2. Add the ham slice and cook over medium low heat for about 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until ham is heated through.
3. Meanwhile, drain the cherries RESERVING the juice in a saucepan.
4. Whisk cornstarch into reserved cherry juice in saucepan and put over medium heat, and stir constantly for 2 or 3 minutes or until thick and bubbly.
5. Add into the saucepan the cherries, basil, and remaining butter, stirring constantly for 2 more minutes or until the butter is melted.
6. Pour the cherry basil sauce over the ham in skillet and let heat together for 1 minute.
7. Serve by slicing ham into portions being sure to spoon plenty of cherry basil sauce on top of each portion.


Ham and sweet, fruity glazes go together very well. Choose a good quality ham to begin with so you end up with a nice tender slice. Cherries and basil compliment each other well. I prefer to use fresh basil, but the flavor of dried basil works excellent, too.

Enjoy this 'fancy' meal when you have only a few minutes to make dinner. No one will guess how simple it was to make. A little yellow rice or brown rice makes a nice addition to the plate.
