Ingredients
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 7 -pound bone-in fully cooked ham, skin removed
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine (or use water)
  • 1 cup cherry preserves
  • 1 tablespoon creamy horseradish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Kosher salt
  • Grated zest and juice of 1 lemon, plus more juice if needed
Directions

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

Score the top and sides of the ham with a small sharp knife in a crisscross pattern. Put the ham in the prepared pan, flat-side down, and pour the wine or water into the bottom of the pan. Tent loosely with foil and bake until a thermometer inserted into the center of the ham registers 140 degrees F, about 2 hours.

Meanwhile, make the glaze: Combine the preserves, horseradish sauce, brown sugar, cinnamon, cumin, 1/4 teaspoon salt and the lemon juice in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook until the glaze is slightly thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon zest; let cool. Add more lemon juice to taste, if needed.

Remove the ham from the oven, uncover and brush with about 1/4 cup of the glaze. Bake, uncovered, 20 more minutes, brushing the ham with another 1/4 cup glaze halfway through. Remove from the oven, brush with more glaze and transfer to a cutting board. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with the remaining glaze.
