Ham with Orange Sauce Recipe

The light and citrusy glaze and sauce is what makes this ham so special. It's as good as it is good for you.—Gloria A. Warczak, Cedarburg, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 1 hour 20 min. YIELD:20 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 reduced-sodium semi-boneless fully cooked ham (6 pounds)
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • GLAZE:
  • 1 cup reduced-sugar orange marmalade
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon horseradish mustard or spicy brown mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained

Directions

  • 1. Remove skin from ham. Place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Combine orange juice and broth; pour over ham. Sprinkle with cloves. Cover and bake at 325° for 1 to 1-1/2 hours.
  • 2. Combine glaze ingredients; spoon over ham. Bake, uncovered, 20-30 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 140° and ham is heated through.
