    duonyte's Note:

    I made this glaze while preparing a spiral sliced ham in the CI way, see Moist Spiral Cut Ham With Pineapple Honey Glaze . I don't much care for ruby port, so used tawny port and also light brown sugar. I reduced the pepper to 1/2 tsp., use more if you wish.A key to this recipe is the quality of cherry preserves. I used preserves from the Kedainiu konservu fabrikas, which contain 35% cherries and no preservatives. I found these at a large ethnic grocery.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cup

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Simmer the port in a small saucepan over medium heat until it is reduced to 2 tablespoons, about 5 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add the brown sugar, cherry preserves, and ground pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is thick, syrupy and reduced to 1 cup, 5 to 10 minutes.
    3. 3
      To use as glaze, bake your ham until it reached an internal temperature of 100 degrees.
    4. 4
      Remove ham from oven and increase oven temperature to 350 degrees.
    5. 5
      Cut open the oven bag (if using the CI method) and roll back the sides to expose the ham.
    6. 6
      Brush ham with about one-third of the glaze (a silicone brush is highly recommended).
    7. 7
      Return to the oven until the glaze becomes sticky, about 10 minutes.
    8. 8
      Remove ham from the oven, transfer to a cutting board, and brush te entire ham with another third of the glaze. (If the glaze has thickened, just reheat it briefly).
    9. 9
      Let the ham rest, loosely covered with foil, for 15 minutes.
    10. 10
      Heat the remaining third of the glaze with 4 to 6 tablespoons of the ham juices, until it forms a thick but fluid sauce. Pass the sauce with the ham.
    11. 11
      Note: I think this recipe makes enough for probably six people, at best, but did not really measure it out after adding the juices. Also, I found the ham juices very salty, and would probably use just two or three spoons of ham drippings, and low-sodium broth or water for the rest.
