  • Orange peel twists and parsley sprigs.


1. Preheat your oven and bake the ham. Cover the ham with foil. Cook the ham until meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of ham reaches 140 F (about 12-15 minutes per pound).

2While your ham is baking in the oven, you can make the glaze. In a microwave safe bowl, combine glaze packet, mustard and zest. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Remove foil from ham; pour glaze evenly on ham.
