  • 1 fully cooked bone-in ham (7 to 9 pounds)
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/2 cup grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 3 teaspoons coarsely ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Using a sharp knife, score surface of ham with 1/4-in.-deep cuts in a diamond pattern. Cover and bake until a thermometer reads 130°, 1-3/4 to 2-1/4 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine grapefruit and orange juices. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half, 6-8 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients; return to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until thickened, 12-15 minutes .
  3. Remove ham from oven. Brush with 1/3 cup glaze. Bake, uncovered, basting occasionally with remaining glaze, until a thermometer reads 140°, 15-20 minutes longer.
