    40whole cloves

    Things To Grab

    • Medium saucepan
    • Whisk
    • Sharp chef's knife
    • Roasting pan with rack
    • Silicone pastry brush
    • Oven-safe meat thermometer
    • Aluminum foil

    Directions

    1. Make Pomegranate-Pepper Jelly Glaze: In a medium saucepan, bring the pepper jelly, pomegranate juice, honey, and lemon juice to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes or until slightly thickened. Whisk in mustard, cinnamon and ginger. Simmer until reduced to about 1-1/4 cups, about 30 minutes.

    2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
    3. Using a sharp knife, score ham by making diagonal cuts in a diamond pattern, about 1/4 inch deep. Do not score the meat itself, just the fat and any skin. Place the cloves in the center of the diamonds to form a nice pattern around the top and sides of the ham. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Insert an oven-safe meat thermometer into center of ham. The thermometer should not touch bone.

    4. Brush ham with about one-third of the Pomegranate-Pepper Jelly Glaze (reserve the rest for later in cooking). Try to work the glaze into the scored lines.

    5. Roast for 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until thermometer registers 140 degrees. Brush ham with remaining glaze a couple times during roasting so the top is lightly caramelized.
    6. Remove ham from oven and brush all over with pan juices. Cover with foil and let rest 15 minutes before serving.
    7. To serve, transfer ham to a serving platter. Discard the cloves.
