or until syrupy. 
  2. Place the ham on a lightly greased wire rack in a large, deep-sided roasting tray lined with aluminium foil. Brush with the glaze and layer with orange slices, overlapping slightly. Carefully brush again with the glaze. Cook, brushing with glaze every 20 minutes, for 40 minutes. Increase oven to 200°C (400°F). Brush again with the glaze and cook for 5 minutes or until golden and caramelised. Serve the ham with the remaining glaze. Serves 12.
