How to Make Spiral Ham with Cranberry Glaze
- Prepare ham according to directions on package. The ham that I had called for pre heating the oven to 325 degrees F.
- 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.
- 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.
