Honey Dijon Ham

Honey Dijon Ham

Mustard and honey glaze this ham, which will make a proud centerpiece on your holiday table. When dinner is just a memory, simmer the ham bone with split peas or beans for a hearty supper.

1 smoked ham, rump or shank portion
2/3 cup honey
1/3 cup Dijon-style mustard
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Place ham in large shallow roasting pan. Bake until meat thermometer inserted in thickest part registers 125 degrees F., about 1 1/4 hours. Remove from oven, trim off rind, leaving very thin layer all around. Score ham by cutting diamond shapes 1/4-inch deep into ham. Combine honey, mustard and cloves in a small bowl. Spoon honey mixture over ham, and into diamond cuts. Continue baking about 30 minutes, or until meat thermometer registers 140 degrees F. Serve with additional warm glaze, if desired.
