Glazed ham is an Easter Staple. This super easy recipe has a hint of orange flavor and will have your family coming back for second helpings. Leftovers are perfect for melted cheese sandwiches.

  • 1 Bone-In Shank Or Butt Portion Smoked Ham (7 to 9 Pounds)
  • 1 Teaspoon Whole Cloves
  • Zest Of 1 Orange
  • 1 Tablespoon Chopped Rosemary
  • 2 Cups Orange Juice
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Apple Jelly
  • 1/2 Cup Grainy Mustard
  • 4 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  1. Score the fat on top of the ham and stud with rows of cloves. Piercing the ham first with a wooden skewer makes it easier to push in the cloves.
  2. In a large-size glass bowl add orange zest, rosemary, orange juice, brown sugar, apple jelly, mustard, and vinegar. Place in microwave, on high, for 1 minute. Remove and whisk until smooth.
  3. Place ham in bowl of slow cooker and top with glaze. Set temperature to low, cover with lid, and cook 6 hours.
  4. Remove ham, reserving liquid in slow cooker. Transfer ham to cutting board. Tent with foil and allow to rest 10 minutes before cutting. In small-size bowl mix cornstarch with 1/2 cup water. Stir into reserved cooking liquid. Cover and continue to cook on low for 10 minutes while ham rests.
  5. Serve with glaze.
