  1. Drain the juice from the can of mandarin oranges into a microwave-safe bowl. Eat the oranges, or reserve for other uses. Stir in the brown sugar and orange juice. Cook in the microwave for 5 minutes on full power, then stir and cook for another 5 minutes. Glaze will be runny.
  2. Use to glaze a whole ham every 10 minutes during the last hour of cooking. Also baste a few times after you take the ham out of the oven.

I halved the recipe and used it on ham slices that I had heated in a skillet. The glaze thickened nicely and my family devoured the ham.

I tried this recipe for our christmas ham. I microwaved it for 5 minutes and took it out to stir it and all seemed well. I put it back into the microwave for the final five minutes. When I came back to the microwave to get it, it had boiled over onto the bottom of the microwave. I had to use a spoon to chip it off of the microwave turn table and it melted my microwave safe bowl...not to mention the smell of burned sugar the permeated the kitchen. This recipe has problematic issues.

We really liked this. It was mild, but added just the right of tangy sweetness to our ham. I grilled ham steaks on the grill, and brushed them with this a couple of times towards the end of grilling. Super simple...will use on ham again!
