Cranberry Glazed Holiday Ham - HOLIDAY SPIRIT COLLECTION
Ingredientsone 6-7 lb Ham (preferably bone-in)
1 bag of fresh cranberries, or a 1lb tin cranberries (Ocean Spray® whole berry)
1 cup brown sugar
¼ cup orange juice
¼ cup Gosling’s Gold Bermuda Rum
¼ tsp cloves ground
¼ tsp cinnamon ground
¼ tsp allspice
4-6 orange slices for garnish
MethodCombine all but the ham and bring to a boil. Simmer over moderate heat until the cranberries "pop". Whisk until well combined, sauce should not be too thin. If using tinned cranberries cooking time will be somewhat shorter.
Trim some excess fat, core the ham in diamonds across the fat side, stud with 20 or so whole cloves. Bake the ham in a 325 degree oven for approximately 2 hours. Remove from oven, drain off most of the fat in the pan.
Glaze with cranberries, decorate with orange slices (secure with toothpick), and return to oven. Cook another hour, basting occasionally.
