Fire and Spice Ham

Fire and Spice Ham

Sweet-hot pepper jelly and tangy pineapple preserves create an easy glaze for the ham.

Ingredients:

1 (5 1/2- to 6-pound) 33%-less-sodium smoked, fully cooked ham half
Cooking spray
1/2 cup red pepper jelly
1/2 cup pineapple preserves
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Trim fat and rind from ham half. Score outside of ham in a diamond pattern. Place ham on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Combine jelly and remaining ingredients, stirring with a whisk until well blended. Brush about one-third of jelly mixture over ham.

Bake at 425° for 5 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 325° (do not remove ham from oven); bake an additional 45 minutes, basting ham with jelly mixture every 15 minutes. Transfer ham to a serving platter; let stand 15 minutes before slicing.
