A big hit with the family diners, this juicy ham makes a fabulous Easter delicacy and complements many side dishes.
Cooking time: 1 Hr
Yield: 15 servings


1)Ham - 1 (10 pound), cooked fully, cut spirally.
2)Brown sugar - 2/3 cup.
3)Apricot jam - 1/3 cup.
4)Mustard powder - 1 tsp, dry.

1)Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C).
2)Lay the ham (cut side down) onto a sheet of aluminum foil. It would be better to put the shiny side up.
3)In a small bowl, coalesce the brown sugar, apricot jam and mustard powder. Brush onto the ham using a pastry or barbeque brush. Set aside any leftover glaze. Enclose the foil around the ham and place on a rimmed baking sheet.
4)Roast for 2 hours in the preheated oven (if your ham is of a different size, figure 14 minutes per pound). Apply the leftover glaze 20 minutes before the ham is done.
