Directions:
Heat oven to 325F.
Place ham, fat side up, on rack in shallow roasting pan. Insert meat thermometer so tip is in thickest part of ham and does not touch bone or rest in fat. Cover loosely and bake 1 1/4 to 2 1/4 hours or until thermometer reads 135F (13 to 17 minutes per pound).
About 20 minutes before ham is done, remove from oven. Pour drippings from pan. Remove any skin from ham. Cut uniform diamond shapes on fat surface of ham. Insert clove into each diamond. Stir together brown sugar, vinegar and mustard; pat or brush on ham. Bake uncovered 20 minutes longer.
Cover ham and let stand about 10 minutes or until thermometer reads 140F. Garnish with orange slices and cherries.
Makes 12 servings.

Tip: This ham is perfect for sandwiches, and you can save the bone for making soup!
