Orange-Habanero Glaze

  1. In a medium sauce pot, melt butter and add onions or shallots. Sauté to a golden color before adding peppers and salt. Continue to sauté to a deeper golden brown before adding orange juice. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Reduce by ¾ to a syrupy glaze. Add more orange juice as needed.


  1. Roast ham at 350° F. low fan for approximately 30 minutes before adding glaze. Brush on or apply glaze neatly over all surface of ham. Return to oven and roast an additional hour, re-applying more glaze as needed. Cooking time will vary depending on size of Ham roast. Ham should be well glazed and caramelized at edges.
