When one  ingredient obliterates the flavor of the main ingredient it really isn't a good recipe. In this case it's a recipe for people who like - no LOVE garlic. So give them  the 6 cloves of garlic...dress it  w a sprig of parsley but forget the ham. Its so much cheaper. I thought the two or three bad reviews I read were just cruel pranks but nope they were dead right. In fact they couldn't have been more right. The ham was so awful -  it would have been cruel of me to ask if anyone wanted seconds.    item not reviewed by moderator and published
Awesome recipe!! Everyone raved the entire night…..and all agreed best ham they every had. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made then glaze yesterday for Christmas dinner. Made the glaze exactly as recipe stated, but did not use a spiral cut ham. It was still very good. It is very similiar to our family recipe, but with a little added punch from the mustard. Very good, and will make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was hands down the best ham I've ever made! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Better than any Honeybaked ham I've ever had! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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! item not reviewed by moderator and published

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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Easiest and tastiest ham I have yet to make. Instant homerun with the family. They can't get enough of it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published

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! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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 all...my family was impressed & it was so easy...love love love this recipe!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published

best ham i ever made and easy too item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a fabulous change to the traditional Sunday ham dinner! Loved the sweet and spicy mix to this wonderful glaze! Made it many times over and you didn't need a lot of ingredients! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Could not believe how EASY and AMAZING this recipe was. I don't usually cook ham for Easter but decided to cook my first ham (ever) this year and used this recipe. The house smelled great while it was baking and it tasted sooooo good that we had to tell our boys to stop eating (after about 6-8 pieces). I would not hesitate to make this again and again the next time I need to make a spiral ham. Thanks Ina for NEVER letting me down when I need a new, easy, and FABULOUS recipe! :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Amazing! The glaze makes it perfect....save some of uncooked glaze to pass around at the table, there will be plenty. I even had a jar of Ina's orange marmalade from when I had an excess of Christmas oranges. I'm not crazy about marmalade by itself, but LOVE the glaze. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't have any orange marmalade in my cupboard so I substituted it with a 8 oz jar of homemade cranberry sauce (with berries visible in the sauce). It turned out GREAT! My husband can't stop eating it and the house smelled so good with the aroma. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent. Kept eating the pieces as I put it on the plate! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just made this for guests later today. I had to taste it before I serve it. I am with this. As was suggested, I kept some of the glaze for dipping (I did add more dijon. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Best...Ham,,,Ever!!! I have been quite a ham eater through the years. Basically, picture Ralphie's dad from A Christmas Story and his turkey fixation. This is far and away the best ham I've ever tasted. I bought one that was spiral sliced and followed the recipe exactly. Upon taking the first bite, each of us got a look of bliss on our faces. We ate as much as we could, and later in the evening kept going back to the kitchen just to smell the aroma still coming from the pan. This is last meal on death row good! I had enough leftovers for several meals but still mourned when the last of it was gone. This recipe doesn't take much effort but will make you look like a gourmet chef. I even used a blender to prepare the glaze because I don't have a food processor. I've eaten my weight in ham, but this was like eating it for the first time, the way it was always meant to be. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thank you Ina! I am a big fan. I don't usually like ham, and I definitely don't like mustard but I love this recipe. I made this for for new year's eve and everyone raved about the ham. I thought I made a mistake at first when I poured the orange sauce on because it was really runny and thin but as it cooked, it really made a nice thick coating. It turned out wonderful and it's a new family favorite. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Amazing!!! I had family over for New Year's and wanted to make a spiral ham, though I have never made one before. I would not usually try out something for the first time when cooking for a crowd, but Ina's recipes never fail! Everyone loved it--even those who don't typically like ham. Everything I make for company/parties are her recipes and always get rave reviews, and this is another fantastic one! Thanks, Ina--you're the best!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

WOW!! This was the best holiday ham our family had eaten! It was delicious! We didn't have a spiral cut ham, but it didn't matter, everyone raved about it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have not yet tried the recipe - I plan to make this recipe in one week for a family gathering. Is there something missing from the recipe? Someone mentioned Trader Joe's mango chutney mix and I do not see it as part of the recipe. I do see a bullet with nothing listed alongside it. I would appreciate anyone who has tried this recipe to let me know if the recipe is complete or not. Once I try it - I can give it a proper rating. Thanks. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I bought a half spiral ham and adjusted the recipe accordingly. It was the best ham I've cooked in ages. It smelled wonderful whilst it was baking .Will make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Used this recipe for our Christmas 2010 spiral ham and it was a HUGE hit! The glaze browned perfectly and the flavors just exploded individually with each bite. Perfect combination. I served with a cheesy hashbrown casserole and grean beans. Soooo yummy. I wouldn't change the recipe a bit and will most definitely make again and again. Highly recommended! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for a crowd of "I will never anything new" type of people. I was asked to bring ham, and boy did I! They loved it!

This ham was very flavorful. My family loved it. I cut the amount of garlic in half and added a little of ground cloves instead, this gave it a rounded smoked flavor.

I made about 1/3 of this since there's only two of us and we had a 3 pound ham. The flavor was incredible. We only had apricot marmalade, but with the orange zest it was really good! We saved some glaze back for dipping sauce and we're glad we did. Nice one Ina! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family thought this recipe was quite good and requested I make it again in the future. I didn't change anything in the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy and Tasty!! Cut down on the measurements a bit due to having a 10lb ham. Also used a drink called "Fuze" Banana Colada flavor ( 3/4 cup ) Gave it a little more Tropical flavor. Wife loved it!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
First off let me say that I'm a HUGE Ina fan and have almost all of her cookbooks. Other than finding that she tends to use more salt than I like, I have never had a complaint about one of her recipes. This ham however was AWFUL. I made it for Easter and all of my guests thought it was terrible but didn't want to hurt my feelings. The orange is SO overpowering. I'm really disappointed since this recipe received 5 stars.....and it's Ina's....I assumed it would be wonderful. I will never make this again. I'm going back to Dave Lieberman's Dijon Maple glaze. It's a hit everytime!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
At 64 I'm just learning how to cook as my former husband previously did all of the cooking. This ham glaze is so easy...I"ve tried it on both a cooked ham and one I cooked from scratch...my very first. Both were wonderful. Thank you for teaching me how to become a good cook!

Tart and sweet and a little spicy from the dijon. Love this glaze. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thelma must not have followed the recipe correctly for rating one star. Ridiculous! This is absolutely the best ham my husband and I have ever tasted. It's too easy really, and the end result is incredible. The orange glaze is out of this world. I know my family will be impressed at Easter lunch tomorrow. Another superb Barefoot Contessa recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I doubled the glaze, using 8 1/2 oz of marmalade, and 8 1/2 oz of Trader Joes mango chutney mixing in the food processor as directed. I spiral sliced a whole ham and covered with half the glaze to marinate the flavors overnight in the fridge. Baking for 1 hour was perfect as the cooked ham wasn't dry, and the glaze developed a nice sheen. After cooling for 30 min, I sprinkled a little sugar on top and torched it with my butane "brulee" torch to crisp the top. It had such a remarkable favor, everyone had seconds, and the poor turkey was an afterthought. This is a recipe to keep!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I LOVED the flavor this glaze imparted to the ham. I made the glaze ahead of time and kept it in the fridge, slathered it on, and let it go in the oven. So easy yet perfect for a holiday meal- delicious! Leftover ham was excellent on some biscuits with mustard and honey- yum. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Our family is made of picky eaters and all of us loved this ham. It's flavorful, but not overpowering as I thought it might be with all that garlic. Thank you for our new Christmas ham recipe!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I decided to make this ham for Christmas after reading the reviews. I typically love Ian's recepies and was not disappointed. Even my husband who doesn't like ham, really loved it. I basted the ham about every 20 - 30 min rather than pouring it all over at the start. It was fabulous! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Used this recipe with an inexspensive boneless ham and my family and our guests loved it. It was easy to prepare, easy to cook and the results was a tasty ham that kept people asking for more. We will definitely use this recipe again and for other types of pork. Yummy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Had 40 for Christmas and served a ham and beef tenderloin. (My first ham.) Still have 1/2 the tenderloin but every single bite of the ham is gone. This was so good and flavorful, and easy. The taste is very "orangey" and fresh. My only change was the cooking time. Had to increase that to 2 hours, as per the instructions on the ham. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was my first Christmas ham this year and it turned out amazing. The ham was tender and juicy and extremely flavorful. I will use this recipe again. Thank you so much Ina!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I seen this recipe and figured I would give it a shot. I really do not like ham and the thought of making one for Christmas was not very exciting. Well I mixed this together and stuck it in the oven a little longer then it called for and basted it about four times. I have to say it was a HIT! I even loved it. The smell alone with it cooking was driving everyone nuts. Great recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Last year I made Tyler Florence's orange ham, and it came out really good, but there were more ingredients and it took longer to cook, but Ina's ham taste Just as good as Tyler's with a lot less work and ingredients! Family loved it and we will definitely be making it next Christmas! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for a Holiday Party at my house and it was a big hit. I did not use a bone in ham b/c I wanted to thinly slice it for mini-sandwiches and it turned out perfectly. I served some of the sauce on the side to use on the sandwich-yummy. I had to give the recipe to 4 different people. I also had enough of the sauce leftover that I used it with a pork tenderloin and it was just as good. Thanks Ina for another great recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Made this last night to rave reviews from my family. I did use a little bit more marmalade than the recipe specified. I used the full recipe of glaze for an 8 lb. ham and basted the glaze on the ham about 4 times during the baking. I have several ham recipes I like, but this one is hands down the all time best I have ever had. When my family continues to fill their plates with ham only.............that's a winner! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I fix a lot of Ina's recipes and really like them. I watched her make this ham; it looked delicious; read the review; all sounded great.

I like ham, but I was getting bored with the traditional honey ham . This Ham is the BEST! It is soooo easy to make and absolutely delicious. Everyone raved about it. I have made it several times now and I don't think I will ever make another basic ham again. Way to go Ina! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This ham was soooo good. I actually had one 8lb ham and one 7lb ham instead of a 14-16lb one and just poured half the glaze over each. I made this for New Year's Brunch and have been asked to make it again for easter. It is so easy and the tangy flavors of the glaze go perfectly with the smoky ham. Another winner from Ina. item not reviewed by moderator and published
