Baked Ham

This ham is usually on the table at Easter. But because we were having a Christmas Brunch it seemed the perfect solution for Christmas this year. It is easy and so good. The orange glaze is sweet and spicy from the mustard. The thyme is just a hint of herb, not enough to bother those who do not like herbs. Lets put it this way, it passes the Dad test. He really likes this recipe. If you line the pan with foil it is easy clean up.

Makes 16 Servings

1 (10 lb) smoked ham
1 (13 oz) jar orange marmalade
1/4 cup stone ground mustard
1 Tbsp fresh thyme, chopped

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Wrap ham in aluminum foil, and place in a slightly greased 13 x 9 inch pan; bake at 300 for 2 hours.

Remove ham from oven, and unwrap. Remove skin and excess fat from ham. Score fat on ham in a diamond pattern.

Stir together marmalade and remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Spoon glaze over ham, and bake 1 hour, basting every 15 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest portion registers 140. Let stand 15 minutes before slicing.
