Makes about 12 servings
Write a review
- 1 cup whole berry cranberry sauce
- ¾ cup apple cider
- ½ cup stone-ground mustard
- 1 teaspoon hot sauce
- 1 (10- to 11-pound) bone-in smoked ham (shank portion)
- 1 cup water
- Garnish: fresh parsley, fresh cranberries, sautéed apples (see note)
- Preheat oven to 325°. Line a roasting pan with foil, and spray with cooking spray.
- In the container of a blender, combine cranberry sauce and cider; process until smooth. In a medium bowl, whisk together cranberry mixture, mustard, and hot sauce.
- Using a knife, lightly score outside of ham. Place ham in prepared pan; pour 1 cup water in pan. Loosely cover with foil.
- Bake for 1 hour. Uncover and bake until a meat thermometer registers 160°, about 1½ hours more, brushing with cranberry mixture occasionally and loosely covering with foil to prevent excess browning, if necessary. Transfer to a serving platter. Garnish with parsley, cranberries, and apples, if desired.
- To sauté apples for ham, melt 3 tablespoons unsalted butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add 1 halved and 2 quartered medium apples, and cook until browned, 5 to 8 minutes, turning occasionally.
