Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Remove tough skin from ham, leaving a thin layer of fat. (Ham will look a bit raggedy after this step.) Using a sharp knife, score fat in a diamond pattern. Press a clove into center of each diamond. Transfer ham to a large roasting pan and pour in 1 cup water. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 1 hour.

  • Make glaze: In a bowl, whisk brown sugar, orange juice, honey, ginger and mustard until smooth. Remove foil from ham; brush with a third of glaze. Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Brush with half of remaining glaze; bake 15 minutes longer, adding more water to pan if necessary to prevent scorching. Brush with remaining glaze. Bake, checking every 15 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of ham registers 140ºF, about 30 minutes longer. Tent ham with foil if it is browning too quickly.

  • Remove ham from oven and let rest, loosely covered with foil, for at least 20 minutes. Serve warm, at room temperature or cold with assorted mustards.
