DIRECTIONS

  • Position oven rack in bottom third of oven; heat to 3250 degrees; you'll need a shallow roasting pan.
  • Cut off thick rind on ham to expose the fat layer underneath, leaving about 5 inches of the rind intact covering the narrow shank end.
  • Using sharp knife, score fat in diamond pattern.
  • Press 1 clove into center of each diamond.
  • Place ham in roasting pan; pour water in pan.
  • Cover loosely with heavy-duty foil.
  • Roast ham 1 1/2 hours.
  • Meanwhile, mix glaze ingredients.
  • Remove ham from oven; brush with one-third of glaze.
  • Continue to bake, uncovered 1 hour, brushing with remaining glaze every 20 minutes, or until internal temperature registers 160 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer.
  • Let ham rest 20 minutes.
  • Transfer to platter.
  • Serve ham hot, warm or at room temperature.
  • Plan ahead: Let ham come to room temperature, covered about 2 hours before baking.
  • This will serve 8, with leftovers.
