THIS CRANBERRY HAM GLAZE IS QUICK, EASY AND DELICIOUS WITH ONLY FOUR INGREDIENTS!
There is nothing like serving your guests a beautiful ham on Christmas Day and I can guarantee my five minute cranberry ham glaze hack will make yours so delicious. You can serve this ham nice and hot on the day. It is also delicious served cold in the days after Christmas, perfect for ham sandwiches.
I wanted to show how easy it can be to make your own baked hot ham at home. Some people find it daunting but this glaze is so easy that anyone can do it. It only has four ingredients: cranberry sauce, wholegrain mustard, brown sugar and an orange.
How to glaze a Christmas Ham:
First of all prepare the cranberry ham glaze. Add cranberry sauce, mustard and brown sugar to bowl then grate in the orange zest. Squeeze all off the juice out of the orange and stir it all together. Set aside until you are ready to glaze.
Next is the trickiest part of preparing ham, removing the skin. To do this you make a large cut around the bone end then slowly run your hands underneath the skin to pull it off leaving the delicious layer of fat.
After that score the fat in a criss-cross pattern and put cloves in the intersection of each criss-cross. Once you have done this you can brush the ham with your delicious cranberry glaze.
This glaze recipe makes enough for a 10kg leg of ham so use around half of it when you first brush it over then baste at least twice during cooking.
Remember to slice the ham downwards so that each slice gets a thin layer of the delicious crispy cranberry fat. I’m sure you will love this super simple recipe as much as I do, the cranberry and orange flavours are the perfect Christmas combo.
I made this last Christmas and it was amazing. ~ Sach
