This is the Ham & Glaze I made for our Thanksgiving Holiday, you too may enjoy it. We certainly did. The glaze is simple and easy and because it was Thanksgiving I thought it was a good idea to use this Cranberry Sauce Glaze recipes that is quite tasty.
I don't remember where I got this simple recipe but it is one of many that I have saved for years and use quite often.

Ingredients

1 large
7-10 lb. spiral sliced butt or shank ham cooked according to directions on package
3/4 c
cranberry sauce
1/3 c
packed light brown sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp
lemon juice or to your taste
1/2-1 tsp
ground cloves or according to your taste buds

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Prepare ham according to directions on package. The ham that I had called for pre heating the oven to 325 degrees F.
2
Wrapping ham tightly in aluminum foil. I used several layers. If using a plastic bag the time required is usually about 14 minutes per pound, or 17 minutes per pound if wrapped in foil. BUT FOLLOW DIRECTIONS ON HAM PACKAGE. My ham required a temperature of 325 for about 90 minutes for the size of ham I had.
3
Then I removed foil and added glaze to ham and baked for an additional 25 minutes. Note you can double the glaze recipe if you would like to have extra on the side.
4
TO MAKE THE GLAZE: In a medium sauce pan or bowl add the cranberry sauce, brown sugar cloves and lemon juice, stir till well mixed then brush over ham liberally, and return to oven and bake for an additional 25 minutes or so.
5
Please note I lined the platter with green leafy Kale then separated ham slices, and arranged them on a platter. Then used a V tool to make the star burst orange and lemon halves and added a maraschino cherry half in the center.
