MethodMain Ingredient


 Fully cooked smoked whole ham with bone16 Pound, trimmed (1 Piece)
 Whole cloves3 Tablespoon
 Firmly packed light brown sugar1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
 All purpose flour1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
 Orange juice2 Tablespoon
 Honey2 Tablespoon
 Orange marmalade2 Tablespoon
 Dijon mustard with seeds1 Tablespoon
 Ground cinnamon1 Teaspoon
 Ground nutmeg1 Teaspoon


1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Place the ham, fat side up, on a rack in a large roasting pan. Using a small sharp knife, score the fat into diamonds and stud with the cloves. Pour 1 inch of hot water into the pan and bake, uncovered, 1/4 hours for a 12-pound ham, 2/4 hours for a 16-pound ham.
2. While the ham is baking, mix the remaining ingredients in a small bowl until smooth. Remove the ham from the oven and with a sharp pointed knife, carefully remove the tough skin from the shank end. Using a spatula, spread the glaze over the ham. Continue baking 30 minutes longer or until the outside is browned and glazed.
3. Transfer to a warm platter, remove the cloves, and let stand for 15 minutes before slicing. If you wish, surround with Sweet Potato Puffs in orange cups, steamed baby carrots, and cherry tomatoes; serve Beth's Buttermilk Biscuits too.
