Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

The very first time I made this, I was holding a Christmas open house. I had set the table with all sorts of delectable foods and gave this ham center stage! It was SO good. I love anything with a sweet & savory flavor to it and this glaze is just perfect! And easy? Oh yeah...definitely easy. The only thing you need to do to it, is baste it as it cooks. But SO worth it!

Orange Glazed Ham

1 (3-4 pound) cooked or uncooked ham.

¼ cup prepared mustard
5 tablespoons orange juice
1 cup brown sugar - packed

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Score ham and place on a rack in a foil lined roasting pan. Insert meat thermometer into the thickest part of the ham.

Combine mustard, orange juice and brown sugar in a medium sized bowl. Pour over ham.

Place ham in 400 degree oven for 30 minutes. Glaze.

Turn oven temperature to 325 and cook according to ham directions, for cooked or uncooked. Glaze ham every 20 minutes until done. If you find that your ham is not giving off enough liquid to make a glaze, add ½ cup of water the first couple of times you glaze. Just pour the water in the roasting pan and give a little stir then glaze as usual.

This is what you'll need for this yummy glaze.

Combine the orange juice, mustard and brown sugar.

Then pour it over the scored ham. 
Use a rack so the ham doesn't sit 
on the bottom of the pan and burn.

Glaze every 20 minutes until done. 
After all the glazing the ham will 
have almost a candy coating all over it. 
You might want to add some water as it cooks. 
Just stir the water into the roasting pan and keep glazing!

Oh so good....
