Citrus Glazed Ham

I’ve decided that I am an anomaly. I fall into the millennial generation but go all old soul when it comes to holidays and traditions. This is probably the reason I serve ham at Easter: it’s just what you do! I don’t know if you file meats into certain holiday categories like I do, but thankfully ham usually is not contested. Since they’re simple and straightforward, if you start with a good quality cured ham you can hardly go wrong. But, as with most things, you can add to the flavor.

A glaze is the finishing touch on a ham that doesn’t cover the flavor of the meat but adds a little balance. Personally, for Easter, any glaze has to incorporate citrus. Case in point: last year’s citrus glazed pork roast. And no matter the occasion, this glaze will leave you wanting more. I dare you to prove me wrong!

Citrus Glazed Ham
Ingredients
  1. 3-4 pound cured, fully cooked ham
  2. 1 cup marmalade
  3. 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  4. 1 teaspoon salt
  5. 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  6. 2 tablespoon orange juice
  7. 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  8. 1 tablespoon minced rosemary
Instructions
  1. Prepare ham according to the heating instructions accompanying the meat. Cover with foil and bake in a preheated 350 degrees oven until the internal temperature reads 140 degrees. While heating ham, prepare glaze.
  2. In a small kettle, combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside until ready to use.
  3. When ham has heated, remove from oven, discard foil, and heat oven to 425 degrees.
  4. Spoon or brush glaze over the ham and transfer to heated oven. Transfer remaining glaze to a dish and serve on the side as a sauce. Let glaze caramelize and brown, but not burn the outside of the ham, about 15-20 minutes. Watch closely!
  5. Remove ham and let sit for 5 minutes. Slice and serve with additional glaze.
