  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 fully cooked-bone-in ham (6 to 8 pounds)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons whole cloves


  1. Preheat oven to 325°. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, marmalade and mustard; set aside. Score the surface of the ham, making diamond shapes 1/2 in. deep; insert a whole clove in the center of each diamond.
  2. Place ham cut side down on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, until a thermometer reads 140°, about 2 hours.
  3. Brush ham with some of the glaze. Bake 45 minutes longer, brushing with glaze every 15 minutes. Serve remaining glaze with sliced ham.
