  • Add all of the ingredients to a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Heat the glaze while stirring with a wooden spoon until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Either pour the glaze over your ham or allow the glaze to cool completely and transfer it to an airtight container.


  • You can use light brown sugar to make this glaze if that is what you have on hand, but it will have a lighter flavor and color.
  • Some brands of bottled orange juice have lots of sugar added which could affect the flavor of your glaze.
  • Leftover glaze can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for to a week. This glaze can also be frozen for up to three months.
