It’s time for me to pick a signature cocktail of my own to help define the upcoming season. Rhubarb is a special springtime treat.

Ham is easily one of the more staple protein choices for families in both the United States and Canada as an Easter feast. Its salty, briny, smokey taste can make for a great centerpiece all on its own or also plays very well with other ingredients.
Ham originally got its start as an easy choice for Easter because in the early days, meat was harvested in the fall and there was no refrigeration available.

Here is a list of our top-10 recipes that have ham in them as decided by popularity from our wonderful community. Our hope is that these recipes will help you think “outside of the box” a little bit and venture out boldly various ways to use this versatile ingredient.
