Christmas Honey Glazed Ham

Christmas Honey Glazed Ham

5-6 lb. fully cooked ham
1/4 cup whole cloves
1/4 cup dark corn syrup
1 1/2 cups honey
2/3 cup butter
1/8 tsp. white & Black pepper

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Place ham cut side down in a foil-lined roasting pan. Using a sharp knife, score the surface of the ham in a diamong pattern. Insert a clove in each of the scored intersections.

Combine corn syrup, honey, butter, and pepper in the top half of a double boiler, and heat until the butter melts and mixture is smooth, stirring frequently. Keep the glaze on the top of a double boiler, over hot water, while baking ham.

Brush glaze over ham. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes at 325 degrees, basting ham every 10 to 15 minutes with the warm honey glaze. Remove ham from oven, cover with foil, and let sit for 10 minutes before serving. Just before serving, caramelize the glaze and serve it with the ham.
