Orange ham glaze

From the Australian Women's Weekly Pork cookbook. I think this could be the one for this Christmas... last year's glaze was truly something that should never be repeated.

  • Cloves (or maybe I might add a few star anise)

  • 2 small oranges, thinly sliced

  • Half a cup orange marmalade

  • Three quarters cup orange juice

  • Quarter cup firm-packed brown sugar

  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard

  • 2 tbsps Cointreau or Grand Marnier

Stir the marmalade, sugar, juice, mustard and liqueur in a saucepan over low heat till warm. Arrange and secure the orange slices over the ham with cloves. Brush with glaze, insert in oven, cook at about 180C for a few hours, till ham is heated through (brushing with more glaze as you go).
