Sunday Baked Ham

1 (6 ½ -7lb) low sodium, smoked, fully-cooked ham (Do NOT use spiral cut! or it won't turn out)
40 whole cloves (yeah, it's a lot of cloves but it tastes so yummy!)
Vegetable spray
¼ c. firmly packed brown sugar
¼ c. honey
3 Tbs. unsweetened pineapple juice
½ tsp. dry mustard

Trim fat and rind from ham. Score outside in diamond pattern and stud with cloves.
Place ham on a rack coated with cooking spray and place rack in roasting pan.

Combine sugar and remaining 3 ingredients in a small saucepan. Stir well bringing it to a boil. Cook 1 minute more then remove from heat; let cool.

Brush over ham and bake at 425º for 5 minutes.

Reduce heat to 325º and bake 1 additional hour, basting ham with sugar mixture every 15 minutes.

Let stand for 15 minutes before slicing

Serves est. 23 people

I got this recipe from our friends Jason & Dayna Bangerter who use to be our upstairs neighbors in our Provo, UT. apartment. It is SO yummy!! I can't wait to make it this year for Christmas.
