  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 cup marmalade or jam we love apricot!
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons brandy
  • 2 teaspoon dry mustard


  • Combine orange juice, brown sugar, marmalade, and cornstarch in a medium-size saucepan. Whisk until mixed well.
  • Place the pan over medium-high heat and let boil until thickened.
  • Add brandy and mustard and whisk until mixed well.
  • Cook on medium heat for 2 minutes while whisking.
  • Pour over ham last hour of cooking.
  • Baste ham by spooning or using a turkey baster to cover the ham in glaze from the pan. Do this every 10 minutes of the last hour to caramelize.
  • Let ham rest for 5-10 minutes. Enjoy!
