    Merrie Wold's Note:

    We have a ham-hating daughter (not HeatherFeather, another daughter), who begs me to make this ham for every occasion. When I lost my original recipe, I found this one all over the Internet with its original title, "Monte's Ham." I've changed it slightly, but you'll love the results. It serves a great many people cheaply, and I always get rave reviews with requests for the recipe.

    1. 1
      Here's the trick- cut as much of the fat and tough outer skin off the ham as you possibly can and throw it out.
    2. 2
      Who needs more fat anyway?
    3. 3
      Put ham in a large roasting pan and score it checkerboard style all over, going about 1/2 inch deep with squares about an inch apart.
    4. 4
      Roast for 2 hours at 300 degrees.
    5. 5
      Meanwhile, put the marmalade, mustard, brown sugar and sherry in a pan and bring to a boil, stirring so it doesn't burn.
    6. 6
      Reduce heat, continuing to stir until it is somewhat thicker.
    7. 7
      Remove from heat.
    8. 8
      After the ham has cooked for 2 hours, remove it from the oven and insert cloves at each intersection of the crosshatching.
    9. 9
      Brush the ham generously with the glaze.
    10. 10
      Increase oven temperature to 350 degrees and cook ham for another hour or so, basting with glaze at least 3 more times.
    11. 11
      Transfer to cutting board and let sit for 30 minutes before you carve.

      This is the most wonderful ham that I have ever tasted. Of course I have never liked ham. Thanks for making this on Easter mom. Could you please make it more often.
