I'm always excited to work with the Florida Department of Citrus. You all know I live in Florida and I love my Florida Orange Juice! I love cooking and baking with it too! Check out my other recipes that use orange juice!
I recently made this wonderful orange glazed ham recipe. It's sooo good! We always make a ham for our annual holiday party. We serve it with little sweet rolls along with coarse ground mustard and slices of cheese. I have it all laid out and everyone can make their own little sandwiches. It always goes over really well!
And if we have them, we use the leftovers to make this fried rice too!
First, I put foil on the counter, that helps make clean up really easy. Remove the plastic piece over the bone before baking.
See how easy it is?
Place the ham in a roasting pan and add water.
Then, cover it with foil. Bake in the oven for 1.5 hours.
Prep your other ingredients. Luckily, it's four ingredients that you'll need including Florida Orange Juice.
Pour in the orange juice.
Add the honey and the rest of the ingredients.
That's what it looks like once it's reduced.
Remove the ham from the oven and the foil.
Add the glaze and put it back in the oven.
This is what it looks like when it's all done!
I used turkey lifters to remove the ham. Slice it and serve!
This is a super simple recipe and with the Florida Orange Juice…it makes it so so good!!

Orange Glazed Ham Recipe
- 6 pound cooked smoked boneless or semi-bone-in ham
- 1/2 cup Florida Orange Juice
- 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
- 2 Tablespoons orange marmalade
- 1 Tablespoon honey
- Heat the oven to 325 degrees F. Place the ham with the cut side down into a roasting pan. Add water about 1 inch deep. Cover the ham tightly with a piece of foil. Bake for about 1 1/2 hours. (You may need to do less time or more depending if your ham is smaller or larger. The package of ham that I bought said bake for 20 minutes per pound, that’s the total time. You’ll see later on, we continue to bake it.)
- Add Florida Orange Juice, brown sugar, marmalade and honey to a saucepan. Whisk together and cook for 10 to 15 minutes on medium, until thickened.
- Remove ham from the oven. Turn the oven up to 425 degrees.
- Using a silicon brush, add the glaze you made to the ham. Cook for another 30 minutes. Adding more glaze every 5 to 10 minutes. When the ham is done roasting, be sure to place it on a cooling rack and allow it to rest at least 15 to 20 minutes before slicing.

It sounds delicious. It would be a great change for a holiday ham.
Citrus with ham sounds like a good flavor combination. I’ve never tried it but I’m willing, Your recipe sounds great!
stella methvin says
Got the ham going in the oven today. Never thought about the OJ though. That would be a great twist and flavor profile I would like.
Dusty Sherrod says
This will be perfect for Easter.
Rebecca P. says
I do not like ham, but for a ham lover this is prob amazing. i do like to use orange juice and tad of brown sugar in stir fry sometimes maybe i’ll try this with the marmalade with chicken over rice!
Carla W. says
I am so going to use this recipe to make my Easter Ham. Thank you so much for the recipe. I saved it to Pinterest.

The glaze looks easy to make. I’ll have to make this for Easter dinner.
Madeleine Dewan says
Marmalade isn’t just for toast I see. Simple recipe with a happy ending.
ellen beck says
I have used orange glaze before and we really like it! If you want to add another element, try adding marmalade. It is super good and ‘sticks’ really well. The orange adds such a nice flavor to ham for sure!
This is a nice twist on ham for Easter! We normally have honey baked ham.

Meghan Finley says
I love this type of ham. I’m gonna try it for Easter
Sandy Headtke says
Perfect for Easter, glad to see it doesn’t have a lot of extra sugar.
MeMe R says
This is a pretty standard ham recipe. We don’t tend to do much ham, much to much husbands displeasure as it is just the two of us and we have so much left over. I am not a huge fan of it either. This is a great starter recipe and ham is a great way for people who like it to make sandwiches, fritatas, quiche, etc and just very versatile.
Karenann S. says
I was looking for a great Easter recipe, and this ham is perfect! It looks amazing, and I can’t wait to try it!
Sandra Beeman says
I’ve ever make a glaze for ham. The recipe seems easy enough and as long as I take my time, should turn out well. I’ve copied your recipe.
Melanie Jones says
Excellent recipe for the upcoming Easter dinner
I love this idea for Easter. We usually do a pineapple glaze for our ham, but this would be a great way to switch it up!
What a great Idea! super versatile too, special occasions or just when you want a ton of leftovers
Haleigh K. says

For those who have tried this – How sweet is the recipe? I’m not a fan of overly sweet ham but I love the citrus idea.
Your ham looks perfect!
Kim Vij says
This sounds delicious for a Florida Easter Brunch with family this holiday season. Can’t wait to try it out!
Definitely trying this glaze on some vegan protein!

My husband is drooling over my shoulder! This looks so yummy.
Sj Dc says
isn’t it too sweet??? do you reckon a handful of red pepper flakes will offset some of the sweetness.???
