• 1/2 fully cooked bone-in ham (6 to 8 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons ground mustard
  • Whole cloves
  • 1/2 cup apricot preserves


Score the surface of the ham, making shallow diagonal diamond shapes 1/2 inch deep.

Combine brown sugar and mustard; rub over surface of ham. Insert a clove in the center of each diamond. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, at 325 degrees F for 1 hour.

Spoon preserves over ham. Bake 15 to 30 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 140 degrees F and ham is heated through.
