  • Add orange juice and raspberries to a small saucepan.
  • Over medium heat bring to a soft boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 1 minute.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and mash up the raspberries using a hand held masher or fork.
  • Place a bowl underneath the fine mesh colander and spoon the raspberry pulp mixture into the colander. 
  • Using the spoon, continue to stir the pulp around in the colander until the  juice has dripped down into the bowl.
  • Discard the pulp mixture.
  • Pour the raspberry juice back into the small saucepan and add in the orange marmalade and sugar. Stir to combine.
  • Put the saucepan back on the burner and over medium heat stir frequently until the mixture is slightly bubbly and thickened.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and let cool slightly.
  • After your ham is done baking, preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Spoon the raspberry glaze over the ham and cook uncovered for approximately 10 minutes or until sticky and set.
  • Remove from the oven.
  • Enjoy!
