This was the first time that I've ever done our holiday ham, and I was so happy with how crispy and juicy it turned out. It's going to be a new tradition. —Chrissy Clark, Boise, Idaho

Ingredients

  • 1 fully cooked bone-in ham (7 to 9 pounds)
  • Whole cloves
  • GLAZE/SAUCE:
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 2-1/2 cups packed dark brown sugar, divided

  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Nutritional Facts

5 ounces ham with 1 tablespoon sauce equals 300 calories, 4 g fat (1 g saturated fat), 70 mg cholesterol, 912 mg sodium, 44 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 23 g protein.

Directions

  1. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Using a sharp knife, score surface of ham with 1/4-in.-deep cuts in a diamond pattern; insert a clove in each diamond. Cover and bake at 325° for 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until a thermometer reaches 130°.

  3. Remove ham from oven. Increase oven setting to 425°. Pour remaining pineapple mixture over ham. In a small bowl, mix light brown sugar and remaining dark brown sugar; spread over ham.
  4. Bake ham, uncovered, 10-15 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 140°. Serve with reserved sauce. Yield: 20 servings.

The best ham we've ever had! Even the ham-haters liked it!

We loved this ham. It was moist and tasty. I forgot to use the cloves and it was still really good. This will probably be our go-to ham recipe.
