"This ham is delicious and is great to make anytime, but especially during the holidays. Notes: The ham should be allowed to stand at room temperature for 2 hours before cooking. The cooking time DOES NOT include the sitting out to get to room temperature time*****Uncooked ham must be cooked until it reaches an internal temperature of 155 degrees F, then let sit for 15 minutes. It will continue cooking while it is resting. Fully cooked or partially cooked (Pre-cooked) ham should be heated to an internal temperature of 135 degrees F, then let sit for 15 minutes. It will continue cooking while resting.***** Baste ham with pan drippings while glazing. Keep in mind though that it will make your ham saltier."

Bring ham to room temperature, sitting out for 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Score ham with a sharp knife in a diamond shape pattern, cutting diagonally in one direction, then diagonally in the other direction, keeping the rows about 1 1/2 inches wide going in both directions to make a diamond shape. Insert whole cloves inside the diamonds.
Place ham in a large roasting pan fat side up, so the fat will baste your ham as it melts. If cooking a half ham, flat side is down.
Turn ham over half way through baking time to avoid uneven salting from the brine in the meat. (Do not do if you are cooking a half ham).
If the ham is not precooked, bake for approximately 20-30 minutes per pound.
If the ham is precooked, follow the label directions for cooking time.
While ham is roasting, combine all the rest of the ingredients in a small sauce pan. Cook over medium heat, bringing to a full boil. Stir frequently. When it comes to a full boil, reduce heat and cook one minute.
Thirty minutes before ham is done, remove ham from oven. Cover ham with glaze, and glaze ham every 10 minutes during the last 30 minutes of baking.
Serve remaining glaze on the side with the ham.
