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


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


  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 thermometer reads 140° and ham is heated through.
  3. Remove ham to a serving platter and keep warm. Strain pan drippings; skim fat. In a saucepan, combine orange juice, brown sugar and ginger. Stir in pan drippings, oranges and raisins. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes. Thicken if desired. Serve with the ham.
