Ingredients

cost per recipe: $30.99

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3 1/2 cups Swanson® Chicken Stock or Unsalted Chicken Stock
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup chopped shallot
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 cup port wine or other sweet red wine
  • 5 ounces (1 package) dried cherries (about 1 cup)
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 Reynolds® Oven Bag, Turkey Size
  • 9 pound unglazed fully-cooked bone-in spiral sliced ham

Instructions

  • Tips

    • Make-Ahead: The cherry glaze can be made in advance.  Prepare as directed above and let cool to room temperature.  Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.  Reheat the glaze in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat until heated through, stirring occasionally. Serve with the ham as directed above.
  • Step 1

    Stir the cornstarch and stock in a small bowl until the mixture is smooth.

  • Step 2

    Heat the butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook until tender, stirring occasionally.  Stir in the allspice and cook for 30 seconds.

  • Step 3

    Increase the heat to medium-high.  Stir the wine, cherries and brown sugar in the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook until the mixture is slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. 

  • Step 4

    Stir the cornstarch mixture in the skillet. Cook and stir until the mixture boils and thickens.

  • Step 5

    Place the oven bag into a large roasting pan at least 2 inches deep.  Place the ham into the oven bag.  Pour the cherry glaze over the ham.  Close the oven bag with the nylon tie. Cut 6 (1/2-inch) slits in the top of the oven bag.  Tuck the ends of the bag under to seal.

  • Step 6

    Bake at 250°F. for 1 1/2 hours or until the ham is heated through.  Remove the ham from the oven bag to a serving platter. Spoon some of the cherry glaze over the ham. Serve the remaining cherry glaze with the ham.

    It was so delicious and easy to make that I had time to enjoy the holiday celebration with the family, friends and neighbors. I substitute the cherries for dried cranberries in cherry juice and the sweet wine for regular cooking wine and it worked out for me. EVERYBODY LOVET IT!!!

    This dish is exceptional in that you can make leftovers. The excess cherry glaze can be expanded and it makes a great gravey for mashed potatoes. Leftover ham makes a great addition to scrambled eggs or omelets the next morning.
