Brown Sugar Baked Ham
by Elizabeth Thompson, Northampton


1 (8-10 pound) fully cooked Ham, bone-in
2-3 Tbsp. Ground Cinnamon
2 Tbsp. Ground Cloves
Whole Cloves, optional
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar, packed
1 Tbsp. Yellow or Dijon Mustard
1 Tbsp. Flour


-Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
-Cut skin away from ham, but leave fat.
-Rub ham with cinnamon and cloves to cover it completely.
-Wrap tightly in foil and bake for 15 minutes per pound of ham.
-Cool ham slightly and scrape away cinnamon and cloves; discard.
-Coat ham with thin layer of mustard.  If desired, cut a diamond pattern into the fat layer and garnish each diamond with a whole clove.
-Combine brown sugar with the flour.
-Pat brown sugar over ham to evenly cove the fat layer.  Use additional brown sugar, if needed, to thoroughly coat ham.
-Return ham, uncovered, to the oven for an additional 30-35 minutes to melt and caramelize the brown sugar.
-Cool before slicing and serving.
