Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the butter, honey, lime juice and nutmeg in a small saucepan.
  2. Heat and stir until well blended.
  3. Slash the outer layer of fat on the ham at 2" intervals.
  4. Peel the cantaloupe, de-seed it and cut into 6 wedges.
  5. Peel the pineapple and cut it into 6 slices 3/4" thick.
  6. Do not core the pineapple as it will make it easier to handle on the grill.
  7. Brush both sides of the ham with the basting sauce and put on a medium hot grill (about 6" above the coals).
  8. Cook for 16-20 minutes, turning and basting frequently.
  9. About 8 minutes before the ham is done, baste the fruit with the sauce and place it on the grill.
  10. Basting often, cook the fruit until it's well glazed and lightly brown on all sides.
  11. To serve, place the ham and fruit on a platter and cut thin slices across the grain of the ham.
