DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Glaze: Combine first 6 ingredients in a saucepan, and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
  • Place ham on rack (or on celery ribs, if you don't have a rack that fits) in shallow pan (I used a covered cast-iron pot with celery ribs to keep the ham off the bottom).
  • Score surface of ham, making diamond pattern around the ham, about 1/2 inch deep.
  • Spoon half of glaze over the ham.
  • Cover and bake at 325°F for approximately 90 minutes.
  • Remove drippings from pan and bake an additional 30 minutes (or until temp reaches 140°F), uncovered, basting 1-2 times with remaining glaze.
  • Gravy: Skim fat from drippings, and combine with dissolved flour or cornstarch, stirring until thick and smooth.
