My daughter and I go wild over this mustard.
- 1 (16 ounce) canpitted dark sweet cherries in syrup, undrained
- 1⁄2 cup red wine
- 1⁄4 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
- 6 tablespoons Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard, divided
- 4 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
- 1 (3 lb) fully cooked boneless smoked ham
- Drain cherries, reserving syrup.
- Combine the cherry syrup, wine, sugar, 2 tablespoons of the mustard, the cornstarch and juice concentrate in small saucepan.
- Cook on medium-high heat until mixture thickens and starts to boil, stirring constantly.
- Remove 1/3 cup of the sauce; reserve for later use.
- Stir cherries into remaining sauce; cover.
- Refrigerate until ready to use.
- Brush ham with remaining 1/4 cup mustard.
- Bake ham as directed on package (I think it says 20 minutes per pound), brushing occasionally with the reserved 1/3 cup sauce for the last 30 minute of the baking time.
- Meanwhile, cook cherry sauce on medium-low heat until heated through, stirring occasionally.
- Carve ham.
- Serve ham slices topped with the warm cherry sauce.
We had this for easter and it was very good. I put the sauce on everything and I like it better then ketchup! Thanks Chef!
This was a great sauce! The tangy mustard and the sweet cherries were a wonderful combination with the salty ham. I used Jacob's Creek Shiraz-Cabernet blend for the wine and it was a great match. Thank you Charlotte J for a great Easter Ham!
