Winning Cranberry Glazed Ham Recipe

Winning Cranberry Glazed Ham Recipe

A dear friend shared the recipe for this tender ham with me. I've taken it to reunions, weddings, graduations, baptisms, holiday gatherings and more. It's a delicious way to please a crowd. The cranberry sauce adds flavor and color.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Bake: 1-3/4 hours YIELD:16-20 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cans (16 ounces each) whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup steak sauce
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 bone-in fully cooked ham (about 8 pounds)

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the cranberry sauce, orange juice, steak sauce, oil, mustard and brown sugar. Score the surface of the ham with shallow diagonal cuts, making diamond shapes.
  • 2. Place ham in a 2-gal. resealable bag. Add half of cranberry mixture; seal bag and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight, turning several times. Cover and refrigerate remaining cranberry mixture.
  • 3. Drain and discard marinade from ham. Place ham on a rack in a foil-lined roasting pan; cover with foil. Bake at 325° for 1-3/4 hours.
  • 4. Place reserved cranberry mixture in a small saucepan; heat through. Uncover ham; brush with cranberry mixture.
  • 5. Bake for 45-60 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 140°, brushing with cranberry mixture every 15 minutes. Warm remaining cranberry; serve with ham. Yield: 16-20 servings.
