Cherry Sauce Recipe

Find a new glaze for your Easter ham this year.



April 2007

Yield: If you are looking for something a little different for your ham, try this cherry sauce.

A spiral-sliced, slow-cured ham topped with Cherry Sauce is irresistible.

Ingredients:

  • 1 package ham glaze and dipping sauce
  • 1 pound frozen cherries

Instructions:

  1. In a saucepan over low heat, combine glaze and cherries; simmer for 8 minutes, or until cherries thaw and mixture begins to bubble.
  2. Remove half of the mixture and purée in a blender for about 30 seconds.
  3. Return puréed cherry mixture to saucepan and stir.
  4. Continue to heat on low for an additional 3 minutes. Serve sauce with ham.
Editor's note: For a more dramatic presentation, do not purée the cherries. Instead, leave them whole. The sauce can be made ahead and warmed over low heat until ready to serve.
