Cranberry Orange Glazed Ham Recipe

Cranberry Orange Glazed Ham

A whole ham is baked with a sweet and tangy cranberry glaze and adorned with orange slices and cherries for an elegant main dish.

  • 1 fully cooked whole ham - about 12 to 15 pounds
  • a few whole cloves
  • 2 cups brown sugar, divided
  • 2 cups cranberry juice cocktail
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 3 T. flour
  • 1/3 cup prepared yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 navel oranges - peel and separate slices
  • maraschino cherries

Preparation -
Score the fat on the outside of the ham in a diamond pattern. Insert a few cloves randomly into the ham. Place the ham in a shallow roasting pan. Cover loosely with foil and bake in a preheated oven at 325º for 3 hours. While the ham is baking, mix the brown sugar, cranberry juice, honey, vinegar, flour, mustard, and butter together in a saucepan. Bring the mixture to a low boil and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove the ham from the oven after baking for about 2-1/2 hours. Place the peeled orange slices and cherries, 1 each, on toothpicks and stick the filled toothpicks in the ham, leaving the tips of the toothpicks exposed for later removal. Pour the cranberry mixture over the ham and bake for 1 more hour at 325º, basting a few times with the sauce from the pan.
