  • Score the fatty side of the ham with a sharp knife in a diamond pattern, spacing the lines about 1 inch apart. Insert whole cloves at the intersections, if desired. Place the ham in a shallow roasting pan and cover with aluminum foil.

  • Bake the ham in the preheated oven for about 90 minutes. About 10 minutes before the ham is finished, measure the apricot preserves into a small saucepan. Warm over medium heat until liquid, then remove from the heat and stir in the honey mustard.

  • Brush the glaze onto the ham, and return to the oven, uncovered, and bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes, or until the glaze is nicely browned. Let the ham stand for about 10 minutes before carving and serving.

I thought this turned out very good. I didn't use the cloves because I was out. I did add about one tbs. of plum sauce. Read More

We made this with the full amount of glaze for a 4 lb. Ham. We also studded the ham with whole cloves before baking. It was delicious with the cloves adding a wonderful complement to the sweetness of the glaze. Read More

Yes, I would make it again. I just mixed the apricot and honey mustard together and smeared it on a slow cooked ham and put it under the broiler for 5 min. Easy. Read More
