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.
