- 1 tbsp. fresh ginger, minced

Directions for glaze
Heat a sauce pan over low-medium heat. Add oil.
When pan is warm, add ginger and garlic and sauté 3-5 minutes to wake the flavors.
Add half of the reserved orange juice to the pan in order to loosen any bits of garlic and ginger that could be stuck to the pan.
Add apricot marmalade, molasses, and Dijon mustard and mix thoroughly and continue to heat on low heat for 12-15 minutes.
Remove from heat and add ground cloves, black pepper and orange zest.
Let cool slightly and puree in food processor until smooth, using reserved orange juice to adjust consistency if necessary.
Then prepare and glaze your ham, and cook as directed.
