> 1 (8 - 10 lb) spiral-sliced bone-in half ham
> 1/2 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
> 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
> 1/2 cup Bourbon
> 2 tbsp Dijon mustard


Preheat oven to 350°F. Fit a roasting pan with a rack and fill with enough water to cover bottom by ¼ inch. Place the ham on rack flat-side down. Tightly cover pan with foil and bake ham for 12 min. per pound.
To a small heavy-duty pot, add the orange juice concentrate, brown sugar, and bourbon. Simmer on medium 18–22 min., until thickened and very syrupy, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and whisk in the mustard. Season with pepper.
Halfway through ham baking time, remove foil and brush with two-thirds of orange glaze. Continue baking, uncovered, basting with pan juices and brushing with remaining orange glaze every 15 min., until ham registers 140°F. Let ham stand at least 10 min. before slicing.


Strain cooking liquid after ham has cooked and brush ham slices with it. Decorate platter with fresh orange slices.
