Orange Honey Glazed Ham Recipe


When the Holidays roam around it always occurs to me I don’t have a ham recipe on my cooking blog so I decided to get this done so at least when Thanksgiving and Christmas get here I will have a Ham Recipe on my site. When I saw this Orange Honey Glazed Ham Recipe I wasn’t sure how the orange flavoring would go with the ham. I have had orange chicken and it was very good so I thought I would give this Orange Honey Glazed Ham Recipe a try. It was very good, and the family loved it. I didn’t slice or score the ham; I just went with the brushing instructions and the amount of glaze that was absorbed into the meat was perfect. The next Holiday season give this Orange Honey Glazed Ham Recipe a try. It’s a simple recipe; you and your guests will love it.
