Orange-Fig Holiday Ham

April 13, 2010

I read about this recipe from Paul Deen’s sons and thought it looked like an interesting one for Easter.  It’s not too sweet and goes really well with any good bone-in ham.  My family liked enough that they opted not to have any mustard with this ham!  Success!

You will need…

  • 1 spiral sliced half ham (I used a semi-boneless 9.5 lb ham from Whole Foods)
  • 1 c fig jam
  • 2 T Dijon mustard
  • Zest of 1navel orange
  • Juice of 1 navel orange

Then you…

  1. Preheat the oven according to the ham packaging.
  2. Cook the ham according to its instructions.  A half hour before it’s done, remove from the oven.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the jam, mustard, zest and juice in small saucepan over medium heat.  Cook and stir until the jam is melted; do not bring to a boil.
  4. Coat the ham with half of the glaze and bake for the last 30 minutes.
  5. Remove the ham from the oven and coat with the remaining glaze.
  6. Serve hot or at room temperature!
