My Father made this ham tonight for a family Christmas dinner. It was excellent! My three young children had about 5 servings and the rest of us commented about how flavorful it was. Since my Father is a chef, he did add some ingredients. Here are the changes and additions he made: The cranberry sauce was the whole berry kind. He increased the lemon juice to about 5 tablespoons, used 1 Tbsp. of dry mustard instead of prepared, increased the ground cloves to 1/2 tsp. and added 1 tsp. ginger, 1 tsp. allspice, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder and 1/2 tsp. onion powder. The ham was so moist and delicious! I will use this recipe the next time I make a ham!

Ok, but doubt if I'd make again. It did smell good while baking.

Very easy to make. I just heated slowly in microwave. Mildly spicy and a little tarty, it was good, the kids didn't complain so I guess it passed.

This recipe was so easy, and tasted wonderful! I followed the advice of the previous poster about adding extra spices, except that I used prepared mustard. I mixed up all the ingredients for the sauce and poured it on all at once over a ham steak and baked it. It made my whole apartment smell like a holiday.

I had never paired cranberry sauce with ham, but this was delicious! My whole family enjoyed it.

So easy to make and it tastes so good. I sliced up the ham and put it into a casserole dish then poured the glaze over top. Warmed it up and it was delicious! I had never thought of using cranberry sauce with ham but it worked really well. I will definitely use this recipe again.

Used sliced ham and grilled it, and used sauce as a dip instead. Add ingredients based on other reviews. Cloves were a little too much for me.
