How to Make Orange and Cranberry Glaze for Ham
- In a small saucepan (or microwaveable bowl), place all ingredients except sugar/sugar substitute.
- Stir well and cook over medium low heat until thickened, remove from heat and let cool slightly. Add sugar or substitute to taste. Mixture should be tart, but not astringent.
- Alternate Microwave method: Stir well. Microwave on high until the mixture thickens, about 3 to 5 minutes. Stirring several times during cooking. Set aside to cool. Add sugar or substitute to taste.
- Spread glaze over the ham during the last hour of cooking, repeat glazing once or twice. If glaze begins gets too dark cover with foil to avoid burning.
