DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Insert meat thermometer into center of ham without touching bone. Place ham on rack in roasting pan and brush all over with cider.
  • Transfer to oven and roast, basting every 20 minutes with cider, for a total cooking time of 12 to 15 minutes per pound or until the meat thermometer registers 140 degrees F.
  • In a bowl combine brown sugar, mustard, bread crumbs and ground cloves. About a 1/2 hour before the ham is done firmly pat the sugar mixture over the top of the ham and continue to roast.
  • When ham is done, transfer to a carving board and allow to rest for 15 minutes. Transfer roasting pan to stove top, heat over moderately high heat and deglaze with the remaining cider.
  • With a wooden spoon scrape up any browned bits from bottom of roasting pan. Add the raisins and nutmeg and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Whisk in cornstarch mixture, return to a simmer and stir until thickened. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, if necessary. Carve ham and serve with glaze.
