I am making two dishes for the potluck C.H.U.M. Open House tonight (www.chumtherapy.net). I am making my Aldi’s glazed ham and my sweet potato casserole. I also made a video for the occasion. I call it the CHUM Christmas Album.
It is a surprise and will be premiered at tonight’s open house. After which DVD’s will be sold to raise funds.
Aldi's Ham Buy spiral sliced ham at Aldis for $14.00 Cook covered in 250 over for 1.5 hours Pour off liquid Mix glaze packet with water - make it consistency of Mud Add brown sugar if you put in too much water Throw glaze in microwave for 30-45 seconds Spoon glaze on the ham spoon it around and hit it with a propane torch to make it bubble and stick to the ham as it dribbles down the side. Throw chunks of pineapple in around the ham at the bottom of the pan - fresh if possible - canned is OK Put back in the oven for an hour or so uncovered 250 To serve put in a Corning dish - cut into edible chunks remove bone - arrange chunks and pineapple in the Corning dish and take to the potluck Chuck's Sweet Potato Casserole Five sweet potatoes peeled and cubed into chunks about 1.5 in x 1.0 in - more than a single bite Boil potato chunks until just cooked in water on stovetop Drain and spread out in 9x12 glass baking dish Cut up 1/4 pound butter into chunks and throw in Mix 1/4 cup Orange Juice, 4 tablespoons of cornstarch, 4 tablespoons of brown sugar - make a kind of mud pour into the pan - the potatoes will give off more liquid. Put in oven at 250 for an hour. Bring mini marchmellows to the venue - just prior to serving put the mini marshmellows on top of the potatoes and pop into the microwave for a short while.
This is still in progress – I may have to update if things
