Glaze for Spiral Sliced Ham?

I am making a spiral sliced ham and I want to try a new glaze for it. I had an idea in mind but then yesterday I caught part of the Barefoot Contessa's show and she made an amazing looking spiral sliced ham. Her glaze was 6 garlic cloves, orange marmalade, Dijon and some brown sugar. She just whirled it up and spread it over the ham.

Does anyone have a good glaze recipe? I usually just use pineapples, cloves and brown sugar. Looking for something different and easy. I'm leaning towards doing the glaze like Ina Garten (since I've got the ingredients in house and wont have to go tothe grocery again).

I vote for the orange marmalade one...That one would be different for me, and it sounds tasty....

Enjoy!

The glaze my mom used was simple and not very sophisticated but we enjoyed it. It was simpley yellow mustard and brown sugar stirred together and poured on the ham. Sometimes she would score the ham and dot it with whole cloves after putting the glaze on.

I like the little packet it comes with..lol...but the pineapple one sounds great. Maybe add a touch of heat to it.

I like the sound of the orange marmalade one as well. There was an interesting one done by Paula Dean, but I can't find it anywhere. Looked really yummy, but I think she is packaging it with spiral sliced hams so she probably won't have it posted anywhere for people to copy.

I like the glaze Alton Brown used on a city ham.

City Ham Recipe : Alton Brown : Food Network

The fact that the recipe calls for bourbon did not influence my judgement on this glaze.

Actually, a splash of bourbon might taste really good on ham! I think I'm going to try the orange marmalade one, it looked really good and relatively easy and I've got all those ingredients on hand (bonus since I won't have to make another grocery run!)

I have 2 different glazes I use for ham. I score the ham, then insert cloves into the fat. Sometimes I use Vernor's ginger ale, brown sugar and apple juice reduced a little and poured over the ham. Baste often. The juices will thicken to a glaze by the time the ham is done.
I have also used the orange marmalade, dijon mustard glaze (no garlic) and I LOVE that one.
My daughter makes hers with apple jelly, dijon, brown sugar and ginger ale. Hers is awesome. I don't think you can go wrong with any of them.

I love a mix of maple syrup, Dijon mustard, black and red pepper, and fresh orange juice.

Butter, dark brown sugar and honey is what I'm using right now.
