This glaze is quite easy to make and the ham will taste absolutely heavenly. Simply

heat your oven to 325 degrees and blend the first three ingredients, above, in a small

sauce pan.
Watch the sauce pan closely as you bring this mixture to a boil. Lower the heat and

allow the mixture to simmer on a low heat setting, simmering gently until the glaze is

thick enough to coat a spoon. Remove the sauce pan from heat and whisk in the Grey

Poupon Mustard.

Next, prepare your ham by placing it inside a shallow roasting pan. You will need to

score the ham with a diagonal pattern, and insert the cloves. Pour half of the mixture

over the ham slowly and carefully, making sure the glaze seeps into the diamond


Bake the glazed ham according to weight (approximately fifteen minutes per pound),

from your oven and allow the ham to set for fifteen to twenty minutes before serving.
