Southern Baked Ham

1 10 to 12 lb fully cooked bone-in ham
1 pk (1 lb) light brown sugar
1 tb Prepared brown mustard
1/4 c Sherry or orange-juice concentrate
Whole cloves


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Wipe ham with damp paper towels. Place ham, fat side up, in shallow roasting pan lined with foil. Bake, uncovered, 2 hours. Meanwhile, in small bowl, combine brown sugar, mustard and sherry. Mix to paste consistency. Remove ham from roasting pan; pour off all fat and drippings. With sharp knife, carefully, remove any skin. To score, make diagonal cuts in fat (be careful not to cut into meat) 1/4" deep and 1 1/4" apart, using ruler, to form diamond pattern. Stud center of each diamond shape with a whole clove. To glaze, spread surface with brown sugar mixture. Return ham to oven. Bake 1 hour or until meat thermometer registers 140 degrees. Remove from heat. For easy slicing, let ham stand 20 minutes. Makes 16 to 18 servings.
