Honey Baked Ham

By/From: Angela Brand

Honey baked ham 1.jpg



5-6 lbs of ham (the picture shows one leg and one shoulder in the same pan).

1 tsp ground cloves

1/2 cup raw honey warmed to a liquid state

1/4 cup Dijon mustard

2 TBSP fresh orange or pineapple juice



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place ham skin side up in a roasting pan.  Bake loosely wrapped in foil for 1 hour 40 minutes. While ham cooks, whisk together honey, mustard, cloves, and juice in a small bowl. Remove ham from oven. Use a sharp knife to score fat in a diamond pattern.  Brush with honey glaze. Return ham to oven and continue to bake uncovered for 20-30 more minutes, spooning/basting the honey-glaze from the pan onto the hams every 10 minutes, or until done.


Baked Alluvial Bacon 


By/From: Olivia Brand


2 1/2 lbs cut pork belly (unseasoned)

1 TBSP salt

1 1/2 tsp pepper

Maple syrup - drizzle over- 1-2 TBSP (optional)

2 drops liquid smoke (optional)


We use standard size casserole pans with cookie cooling racks on top to put the bacon on. Preheat oven to Broil at 425F. Place seasoned bacon on racks and put in oven. Cook 10 minutes. Flip. Cook another 10 minutes. Check. Cook another 5 min. or more if needed. This bacon is perfect for BLT sandwiches, and is good friends with pancakes and oranges; a perfect breakfast!


Breakfast Sausage 


By/From: Daisy Brand



2 lbs ground pork

3 1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

6 dried sage leaves, minced

2 tsp dried thyme, finely chopped



2 lbs of meat fits into 2 standard sized frying pans. We love cooking these sausages in cast-iron pans, but they will turn out wonderfully in any frying pan. These little guys are really good if you drizzle 2-3 tsp maple syrup on top about 5 min before the sausage is done. Yummmm!


Grease frying pans. These sausages cook best at medium heat. However, every stove is different, so you may need to adjust temp. Mix seasonings into the ground meat. Roll 2-3 TBSP balls of the sausage into balls and squish flat in pan. Drizzle with 2-3 tsp maple syrup the last few minutes of cooking. Cook until 180 degrees, about 15 min. Enjoy!
