20 Min

Ingredients

1 1/2 Tbsp
cornstarch
1/4 c
water
2 c
dried cherries
1 1/4 c
port wine
3/4 c
maple syrup
2 Tbsp
red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp
orange zest
1 tsp
cinnamon
2 c
beef broth

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix cornstarch with water and set aside.

In large saucepan, combine cherries, port, syrup, vinegar, zest and cinnamon. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover and simmer until cherries are plump, about 10 minutes. Remove half the mixture from pan and whirl in blender until smooth; use the smooth half to glaze ham periodically while it's baking; reserve whole-cherry glaze.
2
Combine beef broth with reserved whole-cherry glaze in pan over medium-high heat. Stir often until mixture boils; briskly stir in cornstarch mixture until sauce boils again.
3
Serve whole-cherry sauce alongside baked ham.
