3 pound canned ham
1/4 cup yellow mustard
1 cup brown sugar
Cloves, whole or ground
Use a knife to score the ham about 1/8-inch deep on all the sides. You can do the ends too if you like. This makes the ham pretty and also allows the flavor of the glaze to permeate the ham more fully.
Rub the mustard all over the ham. Now measure your brown sugar into a bowl. Scoop it up with your hands and press it firmly onto the ham. Cover the tops and sides. Don't worry about the bottom of the ham. Use all the sugar. If there is any leftover, sprinkle it on top of the ham. If you have whole cloves, press them into the diamonds you made when you scored the ham. This makes it pretty and adds to the flavor. If you don't have whole cloves then sprinkle a little ground cloves over the ham.
Now place the ham in a 325Â° oven for about 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Remove it from the oven every 30 minutes or so and baste it with the juices in the pan. (Basting the ham gives it a pretty golden glaze and a deeper flavor).
If the juices in the bottom of the pan get too thick or seem like they may burn then add 1/4 to 1/3-cup of water to the pan to keep the liquid juicy and spoonable. When the ham is golden brown, well glazed and hot throughout it is done.
Number of Servings: 10
