cranberry orange glazed ham, orange, cranberry, holidays, holiday entertaining,

This is the second ham dish I have baked to date and I must say I am so much more partial to this recipe as opposed to my original brown sugar bourbon glazed recipe. There’s something so perfect between the strong citrus flavor and the salty and sweet ham. This cranberry orange glazed ham perfect for the holidays or any gathering as it is not laborious to make feeds many with other complimenting side dishes.

Cranberry Orange Glazed Ham

Ingredients

1 (8-pound) full cooked ham, spiral sliced
1 can jellied cranberry sauce
¼ cup orange juice
½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
1½ cups orange juice
zest of one orange
orange slices, optional
cranberries, optional

Prepare

1. Preheat oven to 325º F.
2. Place ham into roasting pan. Combine cranberry sauce, orange juice, brown sugar, and orange zest. 3. Spread over ham, reserving at least one cup to serve alongside ham when finished.
4. Pour additional orange juice into base of roasting pan and arrange orange slices and cranberries (optional) around ham.
5. Place top on roasting pan or tent with aluminum foil and bake 1 hour.
6. Uncover ham and baste well with pan juices. Recover. Repeat every 15 minutes until the thickest part of the ham registers 140º on a meat thermometer.
7. Remove roasting pan from the oven and baste again. Let the ham stand for about 15 minutes before carving.

    What a cool idea! I must say, I’m glad you didn’t make the cones – I was feeling singularly unaccomplished!
