- Bring to a boil.
- Blend thickener of your choice with reserved cup of orange juice.

- Bake ham in middle of preheated oven, basting ham every 1/2 hour until done or until meat can easily be pierced with a long pronged meat fork. Cover with a loose tent of foil, if needed, to prevent over browning.
