Cranberry-Dijon Glazed Christmas Ham & Ryder Estate
Oven-Roasted Cranberry-Dijon Glazed Ham
2 cups fresh cranberries
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon paprika
5-6 pound cooked spiral-sliced ham
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F. Combine cranberries, water, and honey in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook for about 4-5 minutes, until most of the cranberries have popped.
Add Dijon mustard, vinegar, brown sugar, and paprika and continue to cook for another 3-5 minutes until the sauce has thickened. Remove from heat and use an immersion blender to blend the cranberry mixture.
Place the ham on a roasting rack and use a brush to coat the ham all over with the cranberry sauce. Place the pan in the oven and roast according to instructions on ham. About 20 minutes before the ham is done baking, brush with sauce one more time. Once the ham has finished roasting, remove from the oven and transfer to a cutting board. Surround the bottom of the ham with fresh sprigs of rosemary, thyme, and cranberries for a beautiful presentation.
