***BAKING NOTE: Precooked hams should be baked at 325 degrees. Baking time is 18-24 minutes per pound, or until the internal temperature reads 160 degrees. ***

***HOW MUCH HAM SHOULD YOU BUY: When planning to cook a ham for a party, or gathering plan to purchase 1/2 a pound per person. Meaning a 7 pound ham will feed 14 people. Obviously this number can vary, but it's a good general rule of thumb.***

HAM: 
1 (7-10 pound) precooked, spiral cut ham
1/2 C butter
1/2 C brown sugar
1/4 C honey
1/2 C orange juice
1/4 t cinnamon
1/4 t cloves

MUSTARD SAUCE:
3 egg yolks
1/2 C brown sugar
1 T flour
1/4 C dry mustard
1/2 C white vinegar
1/2 C water
4 T butter
 
HAM AND ORANGE GLAZE
1. Melt 1/2 C butter in a medium sized glass bowl.  Add 1/2 C brown sugar, 1/4 C honey, 1/2 C orange juice, 1/4 t cloves and 1/4 t cinnamon.
2. Whisk it together to combine and heat it in the microwave for 1 minute.
3. Line a large baking pan with tin foil and spray it with cooking spray. Unwrap your ham and place it in the center of the pan. Brush some of the orange glaze over the ham. Pop this baby in a 325 degree oven to bake. (No need to cover the ham, as we will be basting it regularly.)
 4. Take the ham out of the oven every 15 minutes and brush or pour more blaze over the top. Half way through baking I turned my ham over and placed it face down in the pan, so it wouldn't dry out and so I could coat all sides of the ham with the glaze. Seemed to work well. :) I baked it for an hour and a half. 

MUSTARD SAUCE


1. Place 3 egg yolks into a medium sized sauce pan. Whisk them together until frothy. 
2. Combine 1/2 C brown sugar, 1 T flour, 1/4 C dry mustard in a small bowl. Pour it into the sauce pan with the egg yolks. 
3. Pour in 1/2 C water and 1/2 C white vinegar. 
4. Whisk the mixture together and heat it over medium high heat, stirring constantly. Bring it to a boil and keep stirring while it thickens. Should only take a minute or two. The texture should be just slightly thick, like mustard you would squeeze out of a bottle. 
5. Add 4 T butter to the warm sauce and stir it well to combine. Serve the sauce warm with your ham. 
The sauce will start to thicken as it cools. Reheat it in the microwave if you need to before you serve it. 
6. Store leftovers in the fridge for up to three weeks. 
Enjoy!
