    This is a great tangy glaze for a whole ham. If you have any glaze left over, you can add it to the pan drippings with a little flour or cornflour and make a nice sauce to accompany the meat.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 20 

    • 1 (4.5 kg) fully-cooked, bone-in ham
    • 1 1/4 cups (275g) packed dark brown sugar
    • 5 tablespoons pineapple juice
    • 5 tablespoons honey
    • 1/3 large orange, juiced and zested
    • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

    Directions
    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:2hours45min  ›  Ready in:3hours 

    1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees C. Place ham in a roasting pan.

    Great recipe! I fixed this as part of a buffet for a Superbowl party, and it looked, smelled, and tasted wonderful. (Sadly, I can only assume it tasted wonderful because everyone raved about how good it was... but by the time I finished in the kitchen and got my plate - it was already gone, so I only got a few little scraps!) For ease of preparation, I fixed a fruit salad with it, and used the drained juice from the canned pineapple, and substituted 1/3 cup of orange juice because I forgot to buy an orange. It was much easier to make than other recipes I have used - yet tasted like it had taken a ton of effort. I normally use more complex recipes from the major cooking magazines that can require dozens of spices and ingredients, as I love to experiment with flavors and love gourmet food, so I was leary of how simple this was... but with a very limited budget and limited prep time for this party, I decided to try this one - and was VERY pleased. It looked delicious on the table, and it was the first to disappear on the buffet - I will be throwing away my other ham recipes, and sticking with this one.  -  27 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    I made this for Thanksgiving and it was an absolute HIT!! I do not eat Ham but I fed this to about 10 diffrent people and they All said it was fantstic! Instead of cooking it they way they did I made the glaze, put the ham and glaze in a bag, shook it up reall good and baked it in the bag for about 3hrs. Alot easier then basting every 10 min.s.  -  29 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    This was wonderful, I will be using this glaze on my ham from now on. I added pineapple rings and cherry's for the last 30 minutes and brushed the glaze over them, it candied and made for a wonderful garnish. Wonderful flavor.  -  05 Jan 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
