Baked Ham with Spiced Cherry Sauce

This Easter I wanted to try out a few new sauces to go alongside the traditional baked ham we serve. I found this easy recipe over at ChinDeep. My only change was the halve the amount of cinnamon and cloves, as I found the spices overwhelmed the cherry flavor. Enjoy!

Baked Ham with Spiced Cherry Sauce
Makes many servings

  • 1 ham, size is up to you, follow directions on the package and bake accordingly
  • 1 (12 oz.) jar whole cherry preserves (Recommended: Smucker’s “Orchard’s Finest”)
  • 2-3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon orange zest
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 dash ground cloves

1. Combine the preserves, sugar, orange zest, cinnamon and cloves and heat in a small bowl in the microwave or in a small saucepan on your stove top. Stir until just heated. Plate the ham, pour sauce on top and garnish with more fresh orange zest if desired.
