DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 375.
  • Dry the ham and bring to room temperature.
  • Score the fat in a crosshatch pattern, making the cuts about 3/4 inch deepand1inch apart.
  • Put the ham flat-side down on a rack or in the pan itself; add 1 cup of water.
  • Bake on the lowest oven rack, 40 minutes, adding more water if the pan gets dry.
  • Meanwhile, make the glaze; whisk the jam, sugar, mustard, vinegar and worcestershire.
  • Brush the ham with HALF of the glaze; cover loosely with foil and bake 45 more minutes.
  • Brush with the remaining glaze and bake, uncovered, until the glaze is browned, 40 to 50 minutes.
  • Let rest 15 minutes before carving. This is when I baked the cornbread in the oven.
