  • Remove ham from oven, and increase heat to 450°. Unwrap; discard foil. Remove skin and excess fat from ham. Score fat on ham in a diamond pattern and insert cloves at 1-inch intervals.

  • Stir together 1/4 cup bourbon, sugar, and mustard in a small bowl; set aside. Brush ham with remaining 1/2 cup bourbon. Pat sugar mixture evenly over ham; arrange orange slices over sugar and secure with wooden picks. Lightly baste with drippings; bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until sugar has melted and formed a glaze.
