DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the preserves, orange juice, lime juice, mustard, honey, ginger and red pepper in a saucepan.
  • On medium high heat, bring to a boil, constantly stirring.
  • Reduce heat to medium low and simmer (still stirring constantly) until the preserves are melted and the mixture is blended.
  • Reserve half of this plum mixture in a microwave bowl.
  • Trim the excess fat on the ham to 1/8" thickness and cut shallow diamond patterns over the entire ham.
  • Place the ham on a rack in a foil lined pan.
  • Brush ham with some of the plum mixture that is still in the saucepan.
  • Bake the ham, uncovered, at 350 degrees on the lower oven rack for 1 1/2 hours.
  • Baste with the plum mixture in the saucepan every 30 minutes.
  • Loosely cover the ham with foil and bake 1 hour 45 minutes, basting every 30 minutes.
  • A meat thermometer should register 140 degrees in the thickest portion.
  • Let the ham stand for 15 minutes before slicing.
  • Warm the reserved plum mixture in a microwave and serve with the ham.
  • Place the ham on a platter and garnish with the fruit and onions.
