Yield

Makes 10 to 12 servings

Ingredients

1 (5- to 6-pound) fully cooked spiral sliced ham half*
3/4 cup cranberry sauce or cranberry chutney
1/4 cup Dijon or hot Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Place ham in large roasting pan lined with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Combine cranberry sauce, mustard, cinnamon and allspice; mix well. Spread half of mixture evenly over top of ham (glaze will melt and spread as it cooks). Bake 1 hour; spread remaining cranberry mixture over top of ham.
