1 (7- to 8-pound) fully cooked butt portion ham
1 cup bourbon
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
25 whole cloves


Place ham in a shallow baking pan, fat side up. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 1 1/2 hours.

Combine bourbon, sugar, orange rind, and ground cloves in a small mixing bowl, stirring well; let stand 30 minutes, stirring frequently to dissolve sugar.

Remove outer layer of skin from ham. Score fat in a diamond pattern, and stud with whole cloves.

Baste ham with bourbon mixture. Return ham to oven, and bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour, basting frequently with bourbon mixture.

Transfer ham to a serving platter; cool slightly before slicing.

Note: Cover and store leftover ham in refrigerator.
