  • 1 (10-ounce) jar red currant jelly
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup orange juice

  • 1 (8- to 10-pound) smoked, fully cooked bone-in ham half

  3. Place ham in a lightly greased roasting pan, and pour jelly mixture evenly over ham.
  4. Bake on lower oven rack at 350° for 2 hours and 30 minutes, basting with pan juices every 15 to 20 minutes. Remove ham from oven; let stand 20 minutes before carving.
