This is an adopted recipe. I will post any revisions after I make it.I came up with this by accident one time, and my family especially the kids really enjoyed it. It's very flavorful and tastes good both on the ham and the mashed potatoes. I've made it using a processed or fully cooked ham, but my mom has used it with a bone-in ham and it was really good both ways.
- ham (you can use pre-cooked or bone-in)
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1⁄4 cup prepared orange juice
- whole cloves or ground cloves, if don't have whole
- cornstarch (for thickening gravy)
- cold water (for thickening gravy)
- Score the ham and place the cloves into the scores (if you don't have cloves and use ground cloves, just sprinkle some on the ham).
- Place the ham in oven-safe dish.
- Mix the brown sugar, mustard and orange juice and pour over the ham.
- Cook the ham until it is done.
- Drain off all broth (glaze juice) and pour into a saucepan.
- Over low heat, thicken the broth with cornstarch and cold water until gravy consistency.
- Serve over mashed potatoes or the ham slices.
This was okay. We baked a 4-lb pre-cooked ham for about 1 1/4 hours at 325 F. The marinade made an extremely sweet gravy. We ended up adding water, cream, salt, and pepper to try tone down the sweetness, and that improved it.
