  • 12.75 oz apricot jam (See Note 1)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
  • Brush on roasting pork roast, chicken or ham, basting several times while cooking.



  1. Feel free to substitute with peach or orange marmalade, both work well.
  2. This makes 3 1/2 cups total. Perfect for a large ham, but I would cut the ingredients in half for a pork roast or chicken.
