Recipe: Honey Ham with Mandarin Oranges


1 (4-pound) fully cooked, boneless ham

1/2 cup honey

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1 (11-ounce) can Mandarin oranges in light syrup


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. If ham has skin, peel it away using a sharp knife and discard, leaving a thin (1/8-inch) layer of fat on the surface. Score remaining fat with a sharp knife by cutting diagonal lines, about 1/8-inch deep, from 1 side to the other, criss-crossing cuts to form diamond shapes on the surface.

Transfer ham to a foil-lined roasting pan and set aside. Whisk together honey, mustard and cloves. Brush mixture all over ham. Pour the Mandarin oranges with liquid from can over the ham. Bake 1 hour (14 minutes per pound), basting every 15 minutes with pan juices. Let stand 10 to 15 minutes before slicing into thin slices.

Yield: 4 Servings
