I got this recipe many years ago from my sister who got it from her mother-in-law, who is a wonderful cook- in her 90s and still going strong. It is our Easter tradition to have this ham and sauce with Funeral potatoes, asparagus, rolls, and strawberry pie for our Easter feast. We have it for Christmas sometimes, too.
Large bone-in ham, spiral cut is good
1/2 cup vinegar
2 cups orange juice
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon ginger
Mix the glaze ingredients together and pour over the ham. Bake at 300 for about three hours in a roaster oven or large covered pot(enameled cast iron pot.) Baste with the glaze while roasting. Don't turn the heat higher as the glaze may burn! (Voice of experience!) Serve with Grandma Stratford's Ham Sauce.
