Cooking Notes

* Cooks Note: “Natural” or “Not from Concentrate” orange juice tends to be less sugary than juice from concentrate. But any breakfast style orange juice can be used in equal amounts but will affect the nutritional carbohydrates data.

Cranberry-Orange and Clove Glazed Ham

1 (10 to 12 pound) smoked, spiral sliced (unglazed) bone-in ham
1 can (14 ounces) jellied cranberry sauce
1/2 cup fresh squeezed or natural orange juice *
1/4 teaspoon ground clove
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon ground dry mustard

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a large baking pan with foil. Make sure the pan is large enough to accommodate the sliced side of the ham before unwrapping. Then unwrap the ham and place sliced-side down, pouring all the package juices over the top of ham.

2. In a small bowl, combine the cranberry sauce, juice, clove, garlic and mustard. Mix well. Spoon the glaze over the ham, trying to cover all the exposed sides. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes per pound. Half way through baking, carefully spoon the juices and glaze that has pooled in the bottom of the pan over the top of the ham and continue baking. In the last 15 to 20 minutes, if the ham begins to darken too much, place a sheet of foil over it and continue baking until warmed through completely. Serve immediately or cool to room temperature and store tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Ham may also be sliced or chopped and frozen, tightly sealed, for up to 3 months.
