I love all things cranberry when it's the holiday season! Cranberry is so versatile whether you prepare it savory or sweet, it always turns out so delicious!

Today's recipe is absolutely perfect for your Thanksgiving or Christmas meal.

This ham is made with four simple ingredients and is easy to customize if you want to add something else, or switch up an ingredient.

The brown sugar, cranberry sauce and pepper jelly are a perfect flavor combo with the salty ham and it's great when served for brunch, lunch or dinner.

This recipe isn't spicy and the leftovers are wonderful for sandwiches, fried up for breakfast the next day or for snacking.
