Okay found it and then found an online version - even easier!

Cranberry Glazed Ham

Now as I said, I don't use the pinenuts and I don't serve the apple sauce. I also don't need quite such a large ham so I have always messed around with the quantities. I have used Dijon mustard instead of Mild English, and I have used a mixture of both. And I think I may have even used Mild English - how odd for me to stick to the recipe!! I don't know what the SPC brand is like but I have always used the Ocean Spray Whole Cranberries Sauce jar. As to the baste mix itself, I have a taste before I use it and change the quantities to suit my taste buds. The honey is just a clear unflavoured honey, no special trees or flowers used in the bee-processes. Oh and I smother the exposed meat as well as the fat and place a good blob on the base of the tray before placing the ham. I really like cranberry!!

The ham used is cured, not raw so if you get a raw one, obviously you will need to amend the recipe accordingly. When I was a kid, my parents would cure it themselves but they aren't as readily available here anymore.

Hope it is of interest to you Mac-n-Cheese!

My menu is traditional and very basic - my family would turn their noses up at anything new and exciting - so here it goes:

turkey and gravy - made the usual way
mashed potatoes - made my MIL - she does them the best!
sweet potato casserole - Uncle Bob's recipe so it must be good!
stuffing - made from the package for the very basic people
cornbread dressing - a new recipe I am making with Uncle Bob's help
buttered corn
broccoli and cauliflower cheese casserole topped with crushed ritz crackers
homemade cranberries

dessert includes pumpkin pie (of course), toffee squares, chocolate pie and peanut brittle.

Thanks alot Bilby. I've tried all different types of glazes before and none of them were anything to rave about, so I am going to give this one a try. never would have thought to make a cranberry glaze for ham.
Thanks again

I excited for the big feast. Just found out we're not going out of town so I get to cook with my mom and sister. Woohoo! Can't wait for the big meal. All of your recipes on here sound yummy. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families. Hugs,

Mashed taters with bacon, cheese, cream cheese, chicken broth, chives...or something.
MacNcheese/corn casserole
Stuffing
Probably green beans
Maybe fresh baked bread
