- ½ cup honey
- 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon

- Step 1
Heat oven to 325ºF. Score fat rind on ham at 1-inch intervals with a knife. Skip scoring if ham is spiral-cut. Place ham, scored-side up, in a roasting pan. Place 1 cup water in the bottom of the pan.

Combine black pepper, garlic powder and mustard powder in a small bowl and then rub all over the surface of the ham. Tent ham with foil and roast for 1½ hours.
- Step 3
Combine honey, cinnamon and ground cloves. Remove foil from ham and drizzle or brush honey over the ham. Continue roasting, uncovered for 30 minutes to caramelize the outside.
- Step 4
Remove ham from oven and let rest 20 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to carve or present on a platter, garnished with herbs and fresh fruit if desired.
- Step 5
Serve any juices from pan, in a bowl on the side, if desired.
