How to make an apple cranberry glazed ham recipe.  Use canned cranberry sauce or a homemade apple cranberry sauce for this twist on the classic dish.  

In my family, it's a tradition to make a ham for Christmas.  I actually make it for Christmas Eve then eat leftovers on Christmas Day.

I make a big breakfast for Christmas morning, and I'm just tired in the evenings.  I spent years doing it all to make Christmas magical, and I wore myself out.

So now I make a big dinner for Christmas Eve.  Ham is perfect because we can eat it hot the first night and then use leftover in cold sandwiches or heat it up.

This is a pretty easy recipe.  I almost always have the ingredients on hand, except maybe the apple cider cranberry sauce.  I make a double batch of that the day before and we eat it as a side dish and use it to glaze this ham.

Cranberry Glazed Ham


This isn't just a Thanksgiving or Christmas dish; we enjoy this apple cranberry glazed ham recipe all year.  I can pick up hams for around $1 a pound, which makes it an inexpensive meal.

All five of us eat ham.  Besides pizza, it's the only main meal that all of us will eat.

I usually serve a glazed spiral cooked ham with mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli, and rolls.

How to Cook a Spiral Sliced Ham


I love spiral sliced ham because it's inexpensive, tastes great, and it's already cooked.  They are also very easy to cut and quick to get on the table.

Make sure you look for a ham that is fully cooked or precooked.  This will make it a lot easier for you to cook it at home.

How Long to Cook a Spiral Cut Ham


Since the ham is already precooked, you just need to heat it up.  You want to cook it for 10-15 minutes per pound.  It needs to hit 140 degrees.

Cranberry Sauce


I've used both canned whole cranberry sauce and my homemade apple cider cranberry sauce recipe.  I like it made both ways, but homemade is always better in my opinion.

Ingredients


• 14 ounces whole cranberry sauce (1 can)
• ⅔ cup brown sugar
• ¼ cup apple cider
• ½ teaspoon cinnamon
• 8-10 pound fully cooked spiral sliced ham



Directions


Step #1


Preheat oven to 350º.

Step #2


Place the cranberry sauce, sugar, apple cider & cinnamon in a small saucepan.



Step #3


Cook and stir over low heat on stove until the sugar is dissolved.



Step #4


Place spiral sliced ham in a baking pan or casserole dish.

Step #5


Spoon about ½ cup cranberry glaze over the ham and place in the oven for 45 minutes.



Step #6


Remove from oven and glaze again and continue baking until the internal temperature of the ham reaches 140 degrees. This will take about 10-15 minutes per pound of fully cooked ham.

Step #7


Serve any leftover cranberry glaze over top ham slices.
