Easy To Make Honey Ham with Mandarin Oranges

With Easter Sunday April the 8th right around the corner I thought I would share a super easy recipe for your Easter ham. Gets you out of the kitchen fast to enjoy you freinds and family. 
My family has always enjoyed it. 

Easy To Make  Honey Ham with Mandarin Oranges


  • 1 (4-8 pounds) fully cooked, boneless ham
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
    1- 11 ounce can Mandarin Oranges in light syrup
  • Directions 
    Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

    If ham has skin, peel it away using a sharp knife and discard, making sure you leave  a thin  layer of fat on the surface. About 1/8 of a inch will be good.

     Score remaining fat with a sharp knife by cutting diagonal lines, about 1/8-inch deep, from 1 side to the other, criss-crossing cuts to form diamond shapes on the surface.
    Transfer ham to a foil-lined roasting pan and set aside.

    Whisk together honey, mustard and cloves. Brush mixture all over ham. Pour the Mandarin oranges with liquid from can over the ham.

    Bake 1 hour (14 minutes per pound), basting every 15 minutes with pan juices.

    Let stand 10 to 15 minutes before slicing into thin slices.
    If you are using a larger ham,over 8 pounds just double the recipe

I love ham. Sounds delicious. There's so much one can do with leftover ham too.

This year, going to the Wayside Inn, the oldest operating inn in the United States, made famous to others not from New England by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in Tales of a Wayside Inn :-)

Count on me for dessert though. Happy Easter to you!

I think you could make this minus the oranges would be more of honey mustard taste I would think with a hint of clove.
