You Will Need
- 1 ham
- 1 c. brown sugar
- ¼ c. honey
- 2 tsp. dry mustard
- 15 or more cloves
- A roasting pan
- Sauce pan
- A sauce pan
- 1 tsp. cornstarch (optional)
Determine if the ham has been cooked
Determine if the ham is precooked or partially cooked and let it warm to room temperature before cooking. If it has been cooked at all, allow ten minutes per pound; if uncooked, allow twenty minutes per pound
Preheat oven and place the ham
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the ham on the roasting pan with the fat side up and set it on a middle rack in the oven. Bake the ham unglazed until one hour before it's done.
Cut diamonds in the ham
Prepare the ham for glazing by cutting 1-inch deep lines in diamond shapes on the outside of the ham.
Combine the brown sugar, honey, and mustard in the saucepan. Stir over medium heat until the ingredients are warm and well-mixed.
Glaze the ham
Apply the glaze by spreading it evenly over the ham. Stick the cloves all over the ham for added flavor.
Bake the ham and serve
Bake the ham for the remaining hour. Take it out of the oven, let it rest for fifteen minutes, carve, serve, and enjoy.
