orange mustard sauce for ham

Happy Easter to all of you who celebrate this holiday!

For me, ham is a must on Easter. Typically I like ham with a simple yellow mustard (plain, I know, but my favorite). My husband prefers anything other than simple yellow mustard. I sometimes make a pineapple mustard sauce to accompany the ham, but couldn’t find that recipe today. Searched for it and found a few other recipes, though none were exactly what I wanted. Instead I tossed together some ingredients I knew would do well together, and make a nice addition to the ham. It was perfect!


Orange Mustard Sauce

1/2 cup orange juice

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon brown mustard

1 tablespoon yellow mustard


Whisk together all ingredients in a small sauce pan.

Bring to a boil, whisking often.

Reduce heat and simmer over medium/low heat for about 10 – 15 minutes.

Serve with ham.
