How to Make It

Step 1

Remove skin from ham, and trim fat to 1/4-inch thickness. Make shallow cuts in fat 1 inch apart in a diamond pattern. Place ham in an aluminum foil-lined roasting pan; add broth to pan.

Step 2

Stir together preserves and next 5 ingredients in a saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, stirring constantly, 5 minutes or until mixture is slightly reduced. Cover and chill half of cherry mixture until ready to serve. Brush ham with half of cherry mixture.

Step 3

Bake ham at 275° on lower oven rack 4 hours to 4 hours and 30 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 148°, basting with remaining cherry mixture every 30 minutes. Let ham stand 15 minutes before slicing.

Step 4

If desired, reheat reserved chilled cherry mixture. Serve ham with reserved cherry mixture and mustard. Garnish, if desired.

Step 5

Note: We tested with Smucker's Cherry Preserves and Smithfield Hardwood Smoked, Ready-to-Cook Ham.
