Baked ham is an Easter tradition at our house. The glaze features my dried homegrown basil. My husband absolutely loves ham, so I get a large one to be sure we have leftovers. —Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin


  • 1 fully cooked bone-in ham (8 to 10 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon stone-ground mustard
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves


  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Score the surface of the ham, making diamond shapes 1/2 in. deep. Cover and bake for 1-3/4 hours.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Spoon over ham. Bake, uncovered, until a thermometer reads 140°, 15-30 minutes longer. Let stand 10-15 minutes before slicing.
