Cranberry Glazed Ham THM-S

Bags of plump cranberries on store shelves tell us that Christmas is just around the corner. Cranberries freeze very well so I buy a number of bags to freeze to use later in the year. I love their tartness in cheesecakes, pies, drinks, and also dried for snacking. They also star in this glaze. Spiral-cut Ham baked with cranberry sauce will be served for our Christmas dinner this year.

Cranberry Glaze for Ham THM-S

  • 1 3/4 cups whole cranberries
  • 3/4 cups water
  • 1/3 cup Brown Sugar Sweetener or THM Gentle Sweet
  • 2-3 tablespoons stone ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon orange flavoring
  • 10-14 pound spiral cut ham

In a saucepan cook cranberries and water together until cranberries are soft. Cool. In a blender jar combined cooked cranberries, sweetener, mustard and orange flavoring. Blend until smooth. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place ham in a baking pan. Brush sauce over the ham. Cover tightly with foil. Bake ham for 18 minutes per pound. Baste with sauce 3 times while baking. I heat the remaining sauce with the ham broth from baking the ham. Serve it along with the ham. 2 cups Cranberry Sauce.

Kefir Olive Garden Salad Dressing THM-S

Olive Garden Salad is an all time favorite in our family and what is not to like about crunchy sprouted bread croutons,  peperoncino peppers, grape tomatoes, red onions, and this dressing tossed with romaine and iceberg lettuce . This recipe uses double fermented Kefir as a base which gives you healthy probiotics. I used low-fat kefir which does lighten the calorie load just a bit but still give a flavorful dressing. Romano Cheese gives the best flavor but Parmesan cheese can be used as a substitute.

Combine all ingredient in blender. Blend until smooth. Refrigerate 4 hours for flavors to combine. Dressing will thicken as it sets. A serving is 2 tablespoons. 18 servings
