Equipment

Ingredients

  • 10 lb. ham
  • cloves whole
  • 1 cup orange marmalade (or plum jam even strawberry jam, you can use your favorite)
  • 1/2 cup stone ground mustard
  • 1/2 cup ginger ale Sprite or 7-up, use a clear soda
  • 2-3 tbsp Sriracha Sauce

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees
  • Place the ham in a heavy bottom pan. Using a sharp knife, score the ham first one way, then the other to make a diamond pattern in the skin. Poke the cloves into each diamond all over the ham. Cover tightly with tin foil and put in the preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours.
  • While it is baking, prepare the glaze. Combine the remaining ingredients in a sauce pan on the stove. Heat over medium heat, stirring until all of the ingredients are well combined, reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Set aside when complete.
  • After 1 1/2 hours, remove the ham from the oven and remove the foil. Baste it with the sauce. Return it to the oven uncovered.
  • Baste every 15 minutes over the next hour, three or four times. You'll bake it for about another hour until it is heated thru. It will be glossy and gorgeous and oh so delicious!
  • If desired, finish it under the broiler for 3-5 minutes to caramlize the glaze.
  • Remove it from the oven. While it's resting remove the cloves, cover with foil and allow to rest for 15 minutes.
  • Now here's the hard part.....just slice and eat!

Notes

If you have any leftovers, they are great for scalloped potatoes, ham and cheese omelets or ham salad and whatever you do.....don't throw away the bone! That makes the BEST soup!
Of course you can buy a pre-glazed ham at the store but truly, you'll be happier with this because it tastes so much better!
Steps to score a ham - 
  1. Remove the packaging and pat the ham dry with paper towels.
  2. Set the ham on a paper towel to keep it from moving.
  3. Using a sharp knife, score the ham diagonally both ways. Making the cuts 1/3 to 1/2 inch deep.
  4. Insert whole cloves in the intersection of each cut.
