I had it as a 5 but my 29 year old daughter and wife thought a 3 because of too much orange. I used Dijon mustard as I could not find my mustard powder.

I used the zest from a whole orange and the juice from half of the orange. The glaze was wonderful and produced a lightly glazed ham. The ham was trimmed of fat and stubbed with cloves. It was very attractive and everyone really enjoyed it. Thank you for posting the recipe.

Yumm!! I don't give 5 stars often but I really like this. Did a search for "bone-in" ham to use a shank. I was worried when I tasted the mixture because the flavor of the mustard was really strong. I had a 10 lb ham so I followed the time on the pack but followed the recipe as written otherwise. The sugar did glaze the ham perfectly.
