Cracklin'-Fresh Picnic Ham with Apple-Cranberry-Pomegranate Salsa
Ask your butcher: While a holiday ham traditionally consists of a cured, brined, or smoked cut of pork from the hind leg, we're taking liberties with the word "ham" and choosing the best cut for this job: the shoulder. Order a skin-on fresh picnic ham, aka the picnic cut, a forgiving, economical joint that will give you the juiciest results.
Standing Rib Roast with Red Wine Mushrooms
You'll make a bold statement with Standing Rib Roast with Red Wine Mushrooms as the centerpiece to your holiday feast. Start roasting at 450º for 45 minutes to form the caramelized crust. Then reduce the temperature and finish cooking to keep the inside pink and juicy.
