Ham Marinade

"This marinade tones down the saltiness of a ham slice. It's delicious if you grill the ham slice after marinating. The time does not include marinating time."

    This marinade worked perfectly for the ham slices that I used. It definitely eliminated the saltiness and gave it a wonderful flavor. I marinated it overnight and then grilled it, basting occasionally as it cooked. Thank you for sharing. :-)

    Great marinade. I marinated a ham steak in it for a few hours and it came out great. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Made for Cookbook Tag.

    Exactly as promised it toned down the saltiness of ham, the one reason I don't make ham often. I tried it the OAMC way, as per Pam, and it turned out very good. I will be making ham a lot more often now with this marinade.

    This marinade I will definetly make!! It would not only be great cooked with a ham steak, but a ham slow cooked in a crock pot. This would also work well with Pork Chops! Thank you Luvmybge!! Love, becky

    I marinade the ham in this a couple hours, then cooked in in a skillet on the stove. I added some marinade to the pan, let it reduce, added some more marinade, until it was all used. I ended up with a citrusy, sweet sauce on my ham. I used orange juice in my marinade. Also, I reduced the dry mustard to 1 tsp., and left out the ginger. No one dislikes ginger as much as my dh. Great recipe!

    I didn't have any orange or pineapple juice, but I had everything else. So I improvised and used the whole can, 12 oz., of ginger ale and because I didn't have juice, I put in two squirts of Great Value Fruit Punch with electrolytes Drink Enhancer and added water to make 2 cups. After marinating I pan fried it with some of the marinade, but found that because I didn't use juice, I added a couple of tablespoons of brown sugar to make it glaze up. It tasted great.


Hmm... let's see.. Cooking is my passion... I'm retired now and able to cook and bake every day. I think the most helpful cookbook that I own would have to be The New Doubleday Cookbook. I just love kitchen gadgets and have many of them. Besides cooking I love to sing and belong to the Sweet Adeline's International. I get very annoyed at people who are LATE! I think it's just as easy to be late as it is to be on time. Well.. thanks to all of you at Zaar for all of your terrific recipes and ideas that bring my friends and family much joy and happiness. They get to try all of my new recipes.
