Cranberry Glazed Ham
Preparation: 10 min. Cooking: 90 min.
Total: 100 min.
- 1 cooked smoked butt ham, or shank-half ham, about 6 lb each, skin trimmed
- 2 cups canned cranberry jelly
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves
- 2 tsp dry mustard
- 2 Tbsp cider vinegar
- 16 whole cloves, approximately
- 1-1/4 lbs unsweetened pineapple slices, drained
Preheat oven to 325°F. Using a sharp knife, score 1/4 in. deep cuts around outside of ham in a diamond pattern. Combine next 4 ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring until jelly has melted. Spread mixture around outside of ham and stud with cloves. Attach pineapple rings to ham with toothpicks.
Place ham on a lightly oiled roasting rack in a shallow roasting pan. Place in oven and bake about 1-1/2 hours, basting occasionally with remaining cranberry mixture, until a meat thermometer registers 150°F. Remove ham from oven, and allow to rest 10 minutes before slicing.
