Orange Honey Glazed Ham
Ham has long been the number one alternative to turkey—or have both!
1 (3 to 3 1/2 pound) fully cooked boneless ham
1/3 cup orange juice
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon mustard
1/3 cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup orange marmalade
- Make diagonal cuts about 1/4-inch deep and 1-inch apart on the top of ham. Place ham on rack in shallow baking pan. Insert a meat thermometer in the center of the thickest portion of meat. Bake, uncovered, in 325°F (160°C) oven 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until thermometer registers 135°F (approximately 55°C).
- Remove the ham from the oven; cover with foil and let stand 15 minutes. The temperature will rise to 140°F (60°C) upon standing.
- Meanwhile, combine 2 tablespoons of the orange juice, the honey, and mustard. Bring to boiling; remove from heat. After ham has baked 1 1/4 hours, brush with half the glaze. Mix the remaining orange juice, chicken broth, and cornstarch.
- Stir into remaining glaze. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Stir in marmalade; heat through. Pass with sliced ham.
Makes 12 to 14 servings.
