This recipe is special because it's based on the ham my grandma and mom used to make for holidays. Leftovers can be frozen up to 3 months, and thawed before using. You'll want to remember this recipe for Easter! —Penny Hawkins, Mebane, North Carolina

Ingredients

  • 1 fully cooked bone-in ham (6 to 8 pounds)
  • Whole cloves
  • 1-1/4 cups orange soda
  • 1-1/4 cups orange marmalade
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard

Nutritional Facts

4 ounces cooked ham equals 345 calories, 6 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 106 mg cholesterol, 1,422 mg sodium, 38 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 36 g protein.

Directions

  1. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Score the surface of the ham, making diamond shapes 1/2 in. deep; insert a clove in the center of each diamond. Loosely cover ham with foil. Bake at 325° for 1-1/2 hours.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the soda, marmalade and brown sugar. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half, about 15 minutes. Stir in mustard.
  3. Brush ham with some of the glaze; bake 20-30 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 140°, basting occasionally with remaining glaze. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
  4. Slice and cube 2 cups ham; save for Ham & Noodle Bake (recipe also in Recipe Finder). Slice and serve remaining ham. Yield: 9 servings plus leftovers.

I promised to return here after making this recipe. It was excellent! I used fewer cloves than called for, and added a 1/4 tsp of ginger to the glaze. Will make again.

At the rest of incurring wrath, I'll state right up front that I haven't yet made this, but am planning to. I'm allergic to pineapple so I was very pleased to find this ham recipe that uses something else! It looks amazing and sounds delicious. I'll come back and post more about it once we've tried it.
