Ingredients

  • 1

    (5-pound) cooked ham

  • 1/4

    cup whole cloves

  • 1/4

    cup dark corn syrup or 3/4 cup dark brown sugar

  • 2

    cups honey

  • 2/3

    cup butter

Directions

Preheat your oven to 325°F. Double line a baking pan with aluminum foil. Place the ham in the pan and score the ham placing the whole cloves in the diagonal of each score. In a double boiler heat together the honey, butter and corn syrup. Generously brush the ham with the glaze and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, making sure to baste the ham every 10 to 15 minutes. Keep the glaze warm to make it easier to baste. During the last 5 minutes of cooking, turn on the broiler so that the glaze will caramelize. Remove from oven and let sit for about 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
