Recipe Ingredients:

1 (16-ounce) can jellied cranberry sauce
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 (5-pound) fully-cooked bone-in ham
1/3 cup water

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C).
  2. In a small saucepan combine cranberry sauce, brown sugar, orange juice, cloves, cinnamon and allspice. Heat slowly, stirring until smooth.
  3. Place ham on rack in a shallow roasting pan with water. Insert a meat thermometer. Bake until thermometer registers 125°F (50°C), 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Brush a third of the glaze on the ham 30 minutes before the end of the baking time. Spoon on the remaining glaze every 10 minutes.
  4. After removing ham from oven, let stand 15 minutes before carving.

Makes 8 to 10 servings.

Note: Directions are for a bone-in, fully cooked ham. Also called “ready-to-eat” or “heat-and-serve” ham. A “cook-before-eating” ham must be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F (70°C), approximately 18 to 20 minutes per pound.
