Double-Duty Heavenly Citrus Ham


  • 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


  • 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 15-30 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. Slice and serve remaining ham.

    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.

    Edit: Tried it. It's amazing. In fact, I haven't made a ham any other way since! If you prefer to cook your ham in the crockpot, this recipe is versatile enough to do so. I combined the glaze ingredients and poured them over the ham in the crockpot. Cooked on low for six hours. The meat was juicy, tender, and the flavor was outstanding.

    This is ham. Ham is salty. For a ham like this, my mother always par boiled first. That is what I do. Also, I am diabetic, have high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I would eat this as I often have glazed hams. I like the idea of the orange so I am making this for Easter.

    This recipe sounds good and being diabetic I know there are options you can make here...substitutions for every ingredient used. There are lots of us who love to cook things for our families and friends that for whatever reason we can't be it.
