Cranberry-Glazed Ham

In my house we have Thanksgiving part 2 for Christmas dinner.  There is however the addition of a Christmas ham along with the turkey.  We love ham and we love everything that you can make with all the leftovers.  This year we’ll be up in Flagstaff and so I wanted to make a ham early to get all the leftover goodies.  A few years back my Mom bought the Gooseberry Patch Christmas Book 12.  It has so many great craft and recipe ideas.  This is one that is a must.  Give it a shot this year even if it’s early and just for your family dinner.
