- 1 hickory-smoked, spiral-sliced ham (about 9 pounds)
- Whole cloves
- 1/2 cup apple jelly
- 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Crisscross two large pieces of foil on a baking sheet. Place ham on top of foil; do not separate slices. Stud with whole cloves. Whisk together apple jelly, lemon juice, cinnamon and nutmeg. Brush jelly mixture on ham and wrap in foil.
Bake for 2 hours.
Unwrap ham, leaving the foil in the baking pan. Continue to bake the ham, unwrapped, until internal temperature reaches 115 degrees. Plan on 30 to 60 minutes longer, depending on size of the ham. Bake ham approximately 15 to 17 minutes per pound. Baste ham occasionally.
