1 (4-pound) fully cooked, boneless ham

1/2 cup honey

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1 (11-ounce) can Mandarin oranges in light syrup


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. If ham has skin, peel it away using a sharp knife and discard, leaving a thin (1/8-inch) layer of fat on the surface. Score remaining fat with a sharp knife by cutting diagonal lines, about 1/8-inch deep, from 1 side to the other, criss-crossing cuts to form diamond shapes on the surface. Transfer ham to a foil-lined roasting pan and set aside.
  3. Whisk together honey, mustard and cloves. Brush mixture all over ham. Pour the Mandarin oranges with liquid from can over the ham.
  4. Bake 1 hour (14 minutes per pound), basting every 15 minutes with pan juices.
  5. Let stand 10 to 15 minutes before slicing into thin slices.
