Cherry Dijon Glazed Ham

Sweet cherries, red wine, brown sugar, Dijon mustard and orange juice combine to make a delicious glaze and sauce for this glazed ham.


16 servings


1 (16 ounce) can pitted dark sweet cherries in syrup, undrained
1/2 cup red wine
1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
6 tablespoons Dijon mustard, divided
4 teaspoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon thawed frozen orange juice concentrate
1 fully cooked boneless smoked ham (3 pound)


Drain cherries, reserving syrup. Combine the cherry syrup, wine, sugar, 2 tablespoons of the mustard, the cornstarch and juice concentrate in small saucepan. Cook on medium-high heat until mixture thickens and starts to boil, stirring constantly. Remove 1/3 cup of the sauce; reserve for later use. Stir cherries into remaining sauce; cover. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Brush ham with remaining 1/4 cup mustard.

Bake ham as directed on package, brushing occasionally with the reserved 1/3 cup sauce for the last 30 minutes of the baking time. Meanwhile, cook cherry sauce on medium-low heat until heated through, stirring occasionally. Carve ham. Serve ham slices topped with the warm cherry sauce.
