Glazed Baked Ham w/ Rum-Raisin Sauce instructions
- Heat oven to 325°F.
- Place room temperature ham in a roasting pan fat side up. Very lightly dash the meat with cinnamon and ginger. Dot the meat skin with cloves..
- For a nice presentation affect (diamond cuts), make a long cut 1/2” deep across the fat and skin with a sharp knife. Continue with a few more parallel cuts 1” apart. Next, make crosswise cuts that form a diamond cut pattern. Insert a clove in each center of diamond shape..
- Place a sheet of aluminum foil over the ham and down both sides. Put the roasting pan in the heated oven and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes..
- Prepare the glaze by adding the sugar, vinegar, and mustard in a small bowl and mix to a paste consistency. Set aside..
- After the initial baking time, remove the ham from the oven. Baste the pan juices over the ham. Using a brush, coat the ham with the glaze and place back into the oven with the foil on top..
- Continue to bake another 30 minutes basting again after 15 minutes and at the end. Remove the ham from the oven and allow it to cool for 30-40 minutes before carving..
