1 (3 lb.) boneless ham
1 cup sugar
2 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup cold water
1 1/4 cups orange juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp orange zest
1/2 tsp lemon zest
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan and bake uncovered for 45 to 50 minutes.
Combine sugar, cornstarch, and salt in a saucepan, then whisk in the cold water, orange juice, lemon juice, and butter.
Bring this mixture to a boil, then cook and stir for about 2 minutes or until thickened.
Add orange zest and lemon zest and stir to combine.
Remove ham from oven and brush about 1/4 cup of this sauce over cooked ham; return to oven and bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, until a meat thermometer reads 140 degrees F.
Cut ham and serve with remaining sauce drizzled on each piece.
Makes 6 servings.
