Ingredients
  • Nonstick spray
  • 1 (5-pound) boneless ready-to-eat ham
  • 1/2 cup water or white wine
  • 1 cup cherry preserves
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish (creamy)
  • 1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a roasting pan with foil and spray it with nonstick spray.

Score the top and sides of the ham with a small sharp knife in a crisscross pattern. Put the ham in the pan, pour 1/2 cup water or white wine into the bottom of the pan and bake, covered loosely with a tent of foil, 45 to 60 minutes.

To make the glaze, combine the preserves, horseradish, brown sugar, cinnamon, cumin, cardamom, salt, and lemon juice in a medium bowl. Transfer the cherry mixture to a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil until the glaze is slightly thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in the lemon zest.

Remove the ham from the oven and brush the top with 1/4 cup of the glaze. Bake, uncovered, until the ham is hot and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 140 degrees F, about 20 minutes longer. Remove the ham from the oven to a cutting board and let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Arrange the sliced ham on a serving platter and serve with the reserved glaze.
