What’s your all-time favorite fall meat? For many of us, this time of year is all about gearing us up for that feast of feasts that comes around every November. But would you classify turkey as the ultimate autumn dish, even though we only enjoy it one glorious fall day?

I’d like to submit a new fall-time favorite, if you will. Granted, this dish is typically associated more with the Holiday season than a crisp autumn day. But, when prepared the right way, I think you’ll agree that this dish may be the new go-to dinner for any fall day. That dish is ham! I know, I know, we usually save ham for Christmas and Easter, but why is that? I mean, we all love it! Why not enjoy it more than just twice a year? With the right seasoning, and paired with the right ingredients, this Holiday tradition is guaranteed to to make an early, fall-time appearance this year. Grab your Freeze Dried Apples and Maple Syrup (that’s right, maple syrup!), it’s time for Autumn Spice Ham!

2 Tbsp Butter
2 cups Honeyville Freeze Dried Ham
2 cups Honeyville Freeze Dried Apples
1/2 cup Maple Syrup
2 tsp Cinnamon
2 cups Water

Remember, for this meal, you’ll need your trusty Fagor 3 in 1 Pressure Cooker!


First, turn your pressure cooker to 10 minutes at “High Pressure”, then press start.


Next, add your butter and let it melt completely.


Pour in your ham and let it simmer just until the butter is completely absorbed.


Add your apples, maple syrup, cinnamon, and water, then lock the lid of the pressure cooker on and let cook for 10 minutes.


Release pressure, remove lid, and stir once. Serve over some fresh cooked rice.


This ham has all the fall-time aroma and taste you’ve been looking for in a meal! The apples, maple syrup, and cinnamon infuse the ham with so much flavor, you’re mouth buds will be bursting with excitement! The ham bakes up perfectly tender and moist in the pressure cooker, and, when served over a steaming plate of rice, this meal will fill you up while still leaving you satisfied!


Who said that fall is all about turkey? It’s time to make ham the new Autumn classic!
