Apricot-Glazed Smoked Ham

1ready-to-cook bone-in smoked ham half (8-10 lb), preferably shank end
whole cloves
Glaze Ingredients:
1jar(12oz) apricot preserves (1 cup)
1/4cuplight brown sugar
2Tbspgrainy Dijon mustard (Maille works well)
1Tbspcider vinegar

Recipe Instructions:

1.   Position oven rack in bottom third of oven; heat to 325F. You'll need a shallow roasting pan. (Plan Ahead: Let ham come to room temperature, covered, about 2 hours before baking.)
2.   Cut off thick rind on ham to expose the fat layer underneath, leaving about 5 inches of the rind intact covering the narrow shank end. Using sharp knife, score fat in diamond pattern. Press 1 clove into center of each diamond. Place ham in roasting pan; pour water in pan. Cover loosely with heavy-duty foil. Roast ham 1 1/2 hours.
3.   Meanwhile, mix glaze ingredients. Remove ham from oven; brush with one-third of the glaze. Continue to bake, uncovered, 1 hour, brushing with remaining glaze every 20 minutes, or until internal temperature registers 160F on an instant-read thermometer.
4.   Let ham rest 20 minutes. Transfer to platter. Serve ham hot, warm, or at room temperature.

Yield: 8 servings (with leftovers).
