Orange Glaze For Ham

If you live in Utah , you have probably had the privilege of tasting a honey baked ham. They are SO delicious! But they cost a fortune. So instead of spending $65 on a one, pick up a ham from your local grocery store, and try using this glaze on top. It is amazing. I make a ham like this every year for Thanksgiving AND Christmas!

1 can (6 oz) of orange juice (with NO pulp)

1/4 c. firmly packed brown sugar

1 tsp. dried mustard

1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

1/2 cup brown sugar, set aside

1-Combine the first four ingredients and heat. Stirring constantly until sugar dissolves. This will make about one cup.

2-Place ham in a large, shallow baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees, 15-20 min per pound.

3-After 30 min of baking time, spread top generously with glaze. Continue baking one hour, basting every ten minutes with more orange glaze, until meat is richly glazed.

4- When ham has completely cooked sprinkle 1/2 c. brown sugar on top of the glaze, covering the entire ham. Place in oven for additional 5-8 min, until sugar forms a 'crust." DO NOT overcook!

*This glaze recipe is for a 6-7 pound ham. If your ham is larger or smaller, half or double the recipe.
