It’s Easter morning, a rather large ham is sitting on your counter and you’re probably wondering how the heck you’re going to cook it. Of course, you could use the package of mystery “add water” glaze ingredients that are included with some hams. However, I promise that it couldn’t be easier to make your own glaze, with the sweetness of brown sugar and flavor of oranges.
The beauty of a baked ham is that it doesn’t truly have to be cooked because it is already smoked. All that is required is heating the ham in the oven, then glazing it in the last ten minutes.
A trick that I learned from my mum when growing up is to score the ham, then insert whole cloves into the intersection of the cross cuts. This infuses an extra layer of flavor into the ham…just don’t forget to remove the cloves before slicing and serving.
