This ham is spectacular.

Serves: 24
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 1 1/2 to 2 hours

 

 
1 orange
1 cup honey
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 eight-pound fully cooked whole boneless ham




Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Using a small, sharp knife or citrus zester, remove the orange-colored peel from the orange in long strips. Try not to include the bitter white pith beneath the skin. Set aside to use as garnish.

Squeeze the juice from the orange. Put 2 tablespoons in a small bowl and reserve the rest for another use.

Add the honey, cinnamon, and cloves to the bowl and whisk well. Cover and set aside until time to glaze the ham.

Put the ham on a rack in a roasting pan. Insert a meat thermometer in the thickest part of ham. Bake uncovered for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until the thermometer registers 135 to 140 degrees.

During the last 45 minutes or so of baking, baste the ham often with the orange-honey glaze. Do this with a large spoon or a brush. Spoon up the pan juices and pour over the ham, too.

Let the ham sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes before slicing. Garnish with the reserved orange peel.
