  1. If making a ham, score the ham, and stud with the whole cloves. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the cranberry sauce, orange zest, brown sugar, red wine, and mustard. Stir to blend. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat and set aside. If using the sauce for turkey, mix the whole cloves into the sauce while cooking.
  2. To glaze meat, use half of the glaze before roasting, and use the remaining to baste during the last 30 minutes of cooking.

This sauce had wonderful aroma and color. I couldn't actually taste its affects on the ham though. Next time I think I would use it on turkey, or remove some of the fat from the ham so it could soak in and add more flavor.

Absolutely loved it! I made my cranberry sauce from scratch. I basted the ham throughout, not just the last 30 min. It was an absolute hit at the party I brought it to. I will definitely be making this again.

Delicious with ham and turkey. This has become a staple at our annual Christmas luncheon.

I really liked this. I substituted chicken stock for the wine because I didn't want to open a bottle for a 1/3 of a cup. Worked out beautifully

This recipe was the first one I've posted a picture of on allrecipes, and with good reason. The glaze was a perfect accompaniment to my Christmas ham; it was tangy, sweet and paired really well with the saltiness of the meat. I grew up learning to put the cloves in after the ham was baked, so I did it that way, but instead of adding whole cloves to the sauce, I added about 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of ground clove, with just a dash of nutmeg. I didn't have an orange so I substituted with about 1/2 cup of orange juice. Got rave reviews from friends and family that tried it. This was a real gem of a recipe find for me and I will be using it again this Christmas!
