Gorgeously roasted and nicely spiced, this ham is a fitting centerpiece for a large gathering. It feeds a crowd but still leaves plenty of leftovers for sandwiches. Garnish the platter with orange wedges and fresh herbs.

42 servings (serving size: about 3 ounces)

1 1/4 cups sweet Marsala or Madeira
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1 (10-pound) bone-in 33%-less-sodium smoked, fully cooked ham half
20 whole cloves
Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 350º.

Combine first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until Marsala mixture is reduced to 2/3 cup (about 8 minutes). Remove from heat.

Trim fat and rind from ham. Score outside of ham in a diamond pattern; stud with cloves. Place ham on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Brush ham with 1/4 cup Marsala mixture. Bake at 350° for 1 hour. Baste with 1/4 cup Marsala mixture; bake an additional 1 1/2 hours or until thermometer registers 140°. Baste with remaining Marsala mixture, and bake an additional 10 minutes. Remove from oven; let stand 15 minutes before slicing.
