Another recipe sent to me by my aunt. From Party Time Ideas from Safeway, I believe the date was December of 1959. Enjoy!


  1. To glaze ham, remove from the oven one half hour before done. Pour off the drippings.
  2. With a sharp knife, score the fat in a diamond pattern.
  3. Cover the ham with a mixture made of brown sugar, mustard, and grated orange rind.
  4. Insert whole cloves in each diamond, and pour on orange juice.
  5. Return to oven and baste often for the remaining half hour.
  6. Remove from oven 15 minutes before serving to make carving easier.

This glaze is my new all time favorite. I put the cloves in before the brown shugar mixture though because I thought it would be easier. After putting the mixture on I was glad I did it that way.

Yummy!!!I made 1 small adjustments, I substituted pineappple juice for the orange juice. It was very delicious, I drizzeled the extra claze over the ham once I sliced it. I will definitely use this recipe again.
