Mom's Delicious Holiday Ham Recipe

Christmas and the holidays are quickly approaching and every holiday season, my family looks forward to me baking them a delicious holiday ham. This recipe is one of our favorites as it as a slightly sweet apricot mustard ham glaze. It is really easy to prepare and I think your family will enjoy it for their holiday dinner.

If you have any leftover ham after the holidays are over, ham freezes well and will keep for up to one month if properly cooked and frozen. We like to place ours in freezer containers or in zipper closure food storage bags.

Mom's Delicious Holiday Ham Recipe

1 (5 pound) fully-cooked, bone-in ham
1/2 cup apricot preserves
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup of water
1 cup of orange juice

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Blend together apricot preserves and Dijon mustard in a mixing bowl. Score the ham with shallow criss cross cuts. Spread preserves mixture over the whole ham. Gently pat brown sugar over the top of the preserve mixture. Mix water and orange juice together in a bowl. In a large roasting pan pour orange juice and water in bottom. Place the ham on a roasting rack in roasting pan. Bake approximately 1 1/2 hours or until ham is heated thoroughly. You may need to add a 1/2 to 1 cup of the orange juice/water to the pan as your ham cooks and the liquid evaporates.
