Instructions Checklist
  • Place ham in a roasting pan. If you like, score top of ham in a diamond pattern, making cuts 1/4-inch deep. Bake in a 325 degree F oven for 45 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, for glaze, combine the brown sugar, pineapple juice, and mustard in a saucepan. Cook and stir until sugar dissolves.

  • Pour cider over ham in roasting pan. Place the onion, cloves, and lemon around ham.

  • Return to oven and bake for 30 minutes to 1-3/4 hours more or until meat thermometer inserted into center of ham registers 140 degrees F.

  • Remove ham from the roasting pan and keep warm. Strain juices from the pan and reserve (you should have about 4 cups).

  • Stir together the cornstarch and water. In a medium saucepan, combine the reserved juices and the cornstarch mixture. Cook and stir the mixture until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Serve with the baked ham. Makes 16 to 24 servings.
