Holiday Ham with Cherry Glaze Recipe

Holiday Ham with Cherry Glaze Recipe

We just added the most delicious Smoked Spiral Sliced Ham to our online shop and we couldn't resist putting our own little Cherry spin on it. Don't get us wrong, a moist and tender ham that's been hand-trimmed and coated in spices before being hickory-smoked for at least 16 hours is already pretty special and festive. It doesn't need any embellishment at all. But if you're just a little extra (like we are), you might also enjoy throwing together this quick Cherry Glaze to drizzle over the top.

Holiday Ham with Cherry Glaze



  1. Preheat oven to 325 while assembling sauce.
  2. In a small sauce pan over medium heat, combine cherry preserves through ground mustard. 
  3. Whisk to combine and bring just to a boil.
  4. Reduce heat and simmer 3-4 minutes to thicken slightly. (Sauce will continue thickening one removed from heat.) 
  5. Double-wrap ham in foil and place in oven for approximately 1 1/2 hours to heat through (10 minutes per pound).
  6. Remove ham from oven, uncover, and generously glaze, then rewrap and return to oven for 30 more minutes at 400.
  7. Enjoy!
