So, I am just now getting around to posting my Easter recipes.  Sorry!  

Here is the recipe for the glaze I put on my Easter ham.  I got it from Recipezaar.

Cranberry Spice Glaze for Ham

1 (16 oz.) can jellied cranberry sauce
1 cup brown sugar
¼  cup orange juice
½  tsp cinnamon
½  tsp allspice
Whole fresh cranberries (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan. Heat slowly, until smooth, beating with a wire whisk or rotary beater.

Spoon over ham during last ½  hour of baking.

Garnish with whole cranberries.

Serve any extra in a gravy boat to pass around at the table.

Makes approx. 2 ½ cups.

This was so delicious!  Everyone loved it.  It would be even better for a Christmas meal, I think, since cranberry has become a Christmasy kind of flavor lately.  You could certainly use it as a glaze for other meats as well.  Ham is usually the only meat I put a glaze on.
