    This was hands down the best ham I've ever made!
    Better than any Honeybaked ham I've ever had!
    Happy Easter! Thank you Ina! Absolutely the best glaze ever! Delicious on our butt portion smoked ham. I used Alton Brown's diamond cut method, Ina's glaze, and one extra personal touch... Fresh grated ginger! This one is a keeper!
    Fabulous! The best ham we've ever made. I think it helps to start with a really good ham. I used a ham that was from a local butcher/smoke house. Not spiral cut! I cooked it in my Nesco roaster for 3.5 hours on 250 and kept basting with the glaze. I actually added more orange juice by mistake but it didn't hurt. We really loved this and everyone raved about it. Thanks, as usual, Ina!
    I am undecided if I should use this recipe? Will it still apply to a smoked ham? I don't care for spiral hams. Sounds good. I can't decide?
    I think it's designed to be used with smoked, fully cooked ham. That's what I use it for and I love it.
    I made this for New Years Day dinner in a crock pot for about 6 hours, added scalloped potatoes and some fresh side dishes and it was a huge hit. The ham is flavored well and leftovers were fantastic in ham and cheese omelets, soups, and baked egg dishes.
    Followed the recipe to the letter. Unfortunately, the ham was way too dry. I guess I should have covered the ham with foil, even though the recipe does not include such instructions.
    The best ham we have ever made and tasted! A show stopper!  
    Served with French Potato Gratin, Roasted Asparagus and a lovely Oregon Pinot! 
    A perfect holiday, thank you Ina!
    I had purchased a locally smoked ham on sale at the store and was looking for a good glaze to dress it up. Well Ina's Orange Glaze certainly did! It is the best glaze we have ever had!!
    Very delicious. Mom said best ham she's ever eaten, except in Spain, of course.
    SO easy and delicious! A great way to make ham. Ina delivers again!!
    This is undoubtedly the best ham glaze that I've ever tried. Made this recipe for Christmas--my family loved it! Ina's recipes are always consistently delicious.
    Easiest and tastiest ham I have yet to make. Instant homerun with the family. They can't get enough of it.
    Dynamite! My family loved this! Only addition I made was to add some freshly chopped sage. I used a spiral honey ham and it worked out beautifully. Didn't use salt anywhere as the ham itself is quite salty..gotta watch that cholesterol!! Thanks, Ina!! Will surely make this again!
    Super delicious way to entertain..It's my most definitely go-to recipe whenever i have a party coming..I've done it about 4 times now.. Never dissapointed once! It's perfect, sweet, bitter, just perfect, and the taste-less comenter (itmeansflower from before probably did it all wrong, put some yellow mustard and crandberry jelly?!?! It's crave-full!! Kuddos to Super INA!!!
    I made this today for me and my son. It was delicious--the best ham glaze I've had, and went wonderfully with the honey ham we selected. We bought a much smaller ham and adjusted the proportions accordingly and the ham was beautiful. My son, who barely eats meat and is notoriously picky, cleaned his plate.Highly recommend.
    I found it too sweet and rather overwhelming for the taste of the ham. Honestly, I could barely taste the ham. My husband didn't say much about it, which meant it was just ok for him. Kind of disappointing.
    I thought this ham was disgusting.
    It was easy, delicious & perfect! Another winner Ina, thank you!
    This recipe was super easy to prepare. Although, I have so much leftovers, now I have to figure out different ways on using all of it.
    AMAZING!!!!! Made it for easter dinner but I added a 1/4 cup of honey! Was absolutely perfect! 
    De-licious!!! Made for Easter Sunday dinner with family and everyone LOVED it!!! Absolutely will make this again!
    The flavor didn't work for me.
    I agree.HORRIBLE
    Great recipe!!! Delicous and super easy!!
    This was the most amazing ham I have ever fixed! I did not use a spiral sliced ham but instead just a full ham that I scored creating diamond patterns across the top, added the glaze the last 1 hour of baking time. One thing to remember......the glaze will burn and create the biggest, stickiest mess if you do not line your pan.....Overall a great moist ham!
    Not what I expected. Unfortunately just pouring a glaze over the ham doesn't really allow it to penetrate the meat and influence the flavor or texture of the meat . For that effcect you need to inject the flavoring into the meat. Also, there is no way to fully heat a 15 pound ham at 350 degrees in one hour....maybe two, mine took 2 1/2 hrs to be done. 
    The combo of the mustard and Orange is an acquired taste, kids turned their noses up at it, some adults liked it, some thought it was just OK.
    Once again, Ina has come through for me and made my gathering a success. Everyone loved the ham. I made a mistake and bought a ham already glazed with honey and brown sugar but it only enhanced the orange and dijon mustard flavor. Prepared this recipe along with the cranberry fruit conserve for my turkey and Ina's chocolate cake. Everything was 5 stars!!! And so easy to prepare.
    I made this last Christmas...but used Trader Joes mango ginger chutney instead of orange marmalade....the ham was amazing!! Also served the extra glaze as a sauce on the side with the ham. I am not a big cook at family was impressed & it was so love love this recipe!!
    THE BEST ham in the world!!! Be sure to bake long enough so it gets really, really browned and gooey and a little crispy. This is one of those recipes - - after you've had it once, you crave it forever. Hmmm - - seems like most of Ina's recipes are like that! My favorites - - Croissant Bread Pudding, Engagement Roast Chicken, Homemade Gravy (the one with cognac.
    Everyone loved the recipe! Did not make any changes... 
    Thanks Ina
