Apricot Glazed Ham

A bone-in ham is glazed with apricot jam to give the ham an attractive look and delicious flavor. It's the star of a special Sunday supper and yields lots of extra ham for made-in-minutes meals later in the week.


18 to 20 servings


1/2 fully cooked bone-in ham (6 to 8 pounds)
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 to 3 tablespoons ground mustard
whole cloves
1/2 cup apricot preserves


Preheat oven to 325°F (163°C).

Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Score the surface of the ham, making diamond shapes 1/2-inch deep. Combine brown sugar and mustard; rub over surface of ham. Insert a clove in the center of each diamond. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.

Bake, uncovered,for 1 hour. Spoon preserves over ham. Bake 15 to 30 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 140°F (60°C) and ham is heated through.
