ingredients

For the Sauce:

1/2 cup canned pitted tart cherries in juice
2 tablespoons chipotles in adobo sauce, chopped
1/2 teaspoon cherry extract
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon allspice
2 tablespoons granulated sugar substitute
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum

For the Ham:

5 lb Jones Dairy Farm Boneless Ham
2 tablespoons whole cloves (optional)
1 tablespoon molasses
DIRECTIONS

For the Sauce:

In small saucepan, combine cherries, chipotles, cherry extract, water and allspice. Bring to boil and lower heat. Simmer 8 minutes. Remove from heat and pour carefully into blender. Add sweetener and xanthan gum; puree. Pour back into saucepan and simmer 5 more minutes. Set aside.

For the Ham:

Preheat oven to 325°F.Place ham in ovenproof roasting pan. Add 1 inch of water to pan. Score top 2/3 of ham in diamond pattern to depth of about 1/4 inch. Pierce with cloves (if using). Tent ham with foil and bake 45 minutes. Remove from oven and baste generously with cherry chipotle sauce. Return to oven, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Remove and baste again, then return to oven for another 20 minutes or until temperature at center is 140°F. (This will take longer if you are cooking a larger ham.)

Remove ham from oven and baste with sauce once more. Heat 1 tablespoon of molasses in microwave until runny. Drizzle molasses over top of ham. Remove cloves before carving.
