You can't go wrong with either one of these ham glazes. They'll make your Easter ham the stand-out of the holiday. Both are easy to make, and very flavorful. CAUTION---because of the sugar content, you do not want to cook or heat-up your ham using high temperatures. Otherwise, the glaze will scorch on the meat.
Molasses/Orange Ham Glaze
The most sublime ham mop I’ve ever had! Four ingredients—one incredible glaze!
Ingredients 1.5 cups of molasses 1.5 cups of pure orange juice (pulp free), 1 TB garlic powder, ½ tsp. allspice.
Preparation: In a 2 qt sauce pan, add all ingredients, mix thoroughly and reduce by half using medium heat. Remove from burner, allow to cool. Baste on ham while cooking or warming-approx. every 20 minutes, until ham is cooked/warm. Absolutely wonderful with hickory smoked ham!
Mr.Barbecue's All Time Favorite Ham Glaze:
I came up with this recipe a few years ago for one of my Traeger brothers. It became an instant hit with the family, and is still used to this day. It provides wonderful flavor to any type of ham.
Ingredients: 1 cup of mustard (your choice-yellow,deli, German-style), 1/2 cup orange or pineapple juice, 1/4 cup clover honey, 2tsp. garlic powder, 1tsp. paprika, 1/2 tsp. allspice.
Preparation: Blend all ingredients together in a bowl or mixing cup. Slather on the ham, and use remainder to baste ham every 45 minutes while cooking. Makes approx. 2 cups.
