1 to 8 - pound ham


  • 2 tablespoons orange juice

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves

  • 1 cup honey

  • 1 (8 pound) fully cooked whole ham


  1. Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Stir the orange juice, cinnamon, clove, and honey together in a small bowl; set aside. Stir in almond extract if desired.

  2. Place the ham in a shallow roasting pan. Bake in the preheated oven 1 hour and 15 minutes. Remove the ham from the oven, and baste with the honey glaze. Return to the oven; continue cooking until the ham reaches an internal temperature of 140 degrees F (60 degrees C), about 45 minutes longer. Baste occasionally as the ham finishes baking.
