Simple, easy and most delicious. A must at any of our family gatherings and loved by the little one's just as much as the older one's love it.

This recipe was so so good! I made this on Easter weekend and we ate it all weekend long. I put mine in the crock pot on low heat for about 8 hrs. It is fall off the bone good by then. I also added a little pineapple juice. So delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 ham (spiral, bone in, whatever you like to use)
  • 177.44 ml packed brown sugar
  • 118.29 ml liquid honey
  • 354.88 ml unsweetened orange juice or 354.88 ml 5 alive citrus juice (since it was what I had in the fridge.)
  • 14.79 ml dry mustard (I use Keen's brand)


  1. Place ham in a roaster pan or bake safe cookware.
  2. Mix brown sugar,honey and dry mustard in a medium size bowl.
  3. Slowly add orange juice/5 alive juice to bowl while stirring with a whisk ensuring no lumps.
  4. You are wanting a thicker consistency for the sauce rather then a runny or loose sauce so add juice according to what you are wanting.
  5. Bake ham according to cooking instructions while basting every 15 minutes.
  6. NOTE: I often double the recipe to ensure extra sauce.
