  • 1 sliced smoked boneless ham (about 2.5 – 3 lbs.)
  • ¾ cup apricot preserves
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves (use less cloves if you don’t want a strong cloves taste)


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Place ham in a baking dish.
  • In a small bowl, combine preserves, mustard, sugar, and cloves. Spread about ¼ of the mixture on top of the ham. Reserve the remaining glaze.
  • Cover ham loosely with foil and bake for 25 minutes.
  • Uncover ham, spread another ¼ of the glaze over top, and bake (uncovered) for an additional 15-20 minutes. Do not overcook.
  • Warm remaining glaze in a saucepan and serve with ham slices.


  • It's safe to assume about ⅓ lb. - ½ lb. of the baked ham per person. For example, a 3-lb. ham will serve about 6 people.
  • Cooked ham will keep in the refrigerator for about 3-4 days.
  • Wrapped tightly, the cooked ham will keep in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  • If you don't want a fairly strong cloves taste, you can decrease the amount that you use to just a dash.
  • Instead of apricot preserves, try using orange marmalade for an equally delicious ham glaze!
