Two Ham Glaze Recipes

Sandy Coughlin, author of The Reluctant Entertainer, has come up with two unique recipes offering two very different takes on glazed ham. The first is a blood orange marmalade ham glaze recipe that gives the traditional meat a little “kick” to it, making for a spicy surprise your family or guests will enjoy. The second is a glaze using mixed dried fruits for a more varied, traditional flavor. Both are prime examples of what you can do with some creative cooking and the finest Harry & David ingredients.

Blood Orange Marmalade Ham Glaze Recipe

blood orange ham glaze recipe ingredients Preparation: Mix marmalade, mustard, ginger about 30 minutes before ham is done, then spoon half of it over the ham. With the remaining sauce, add orange juice and simmer for about 5 minutes. Prepare ham as instructed on the package. Store Prep: Cut the first three ingredients in half.  Combine the first three ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and then add the ¼ cup of orange juice. Mix and microwave for about 60 seconds.  This is now ready to serve.  Since this is a sweet blend, it may be best adapted to use as a glaze more than used after baking the ham.
