Ingredients

  • 1

    (8-pound) smoked, cured bone-in ham

  • 1/2

    cup cherry preserves

  • 1/4

    cup brown sugar

  • 3

    tablespoons grainy mustard

  • 1

    tablespoon whole coriander seeds, lightly crushed

  • 2

    teaspoons chili powder

  • 1/4

    teaspoon ground ginger

  • Salt and freshly cracked black pepper

  • Pinch cayenne

Directions

Let the ham sit at room temperature for about 1 hour. Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat to 325°F. Using a sharp knife, score the top and sides of the ham lengthwise, making cuts about 1/4 inch deep and 1 inch apart. Rotate the ham 90 degrees and repeat to make crisscross cuts. Transfer the ham to a nonstick roasting pan or a roasting pan lined with heavy-duty foil. Roast, rotating the pan once, until the ham is evenly browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part (without touching the bone) registers 125°F, about 2 1/2 hours. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the preserves, brown sugar, mustard, coriander, chili powder, ginger, a pinch salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and the cayenne. Bring to a simmer, stirring, to dissolve the sugar. Remove from the heat. When the ham reaches an internal temperature of 130°F, increase the oven temperature to 400°F. Brush the top of the ham with half of the glaze and roast until the surface is dark brown and sizzling, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer the ham to a cutting board with a moat and brush with the remaining glaze. Let rest for 20 minutes before slicing.
