This spiced Maple and Orange Glazed Ham is perfect for the holidays. The orange marmalade and maple syrup are the perfect complements to any ham dish. I think it would be a wonderful sauce for Pork Tenderloin, Chicken, Seafood, and so much more.

Can you glaze a ham the night before?
- Glazing should be done in the last 15-20 minutes of baking, but you can certainly make the glaze ahead of time. Make the glaze up to five days in advance, cover, and keep refrigerated. Place in a saucepan over low-medium heat to thin it out for basting ham.
How do you Glaze a pre-cooked ham?
- You will still need to cook the ham according to the cooking chart that came with your ham or a reputable cooking chart. About 15-20 minutes before the ham is done, glaze the ham and bake until finished
Should you put liquid in the bottom of the roaster for ham?
- Yes. I would put about 1 cup of water or broth into the bottom of the roaster before cooking ham
How do you place ham in the roaster?
- Place it skin side up so the skin can get crisp
