Glazed Ham of My Dreams

1 bone-in ham (18 to 20 lbs.)
1 can (12 oz.)
60 to 75 whole cloves
Fruit glaze

Preheat oven to 475F.

Remove plastic wrapper and netting from ham. Put ham in sturdy roasting pan, fat side up. Score ham 1/4-inch deep diagonally in cross hatch, making cuts 1 inch apart, and creating diamonds. Insert whole cloves, sharp end down, into diamond intersections. Do not score too deeply, or, as ham cooks, the cloves will fall into the deep crevices. Pour Coca-Cola over scored ham and bake it in middle of the oven for 1 hour.

Remove ham and lower oven temperature to 350F. Pour on just enough glaze to cover entire ham and bake 4 more hours in oven. Re-glaze ham every 20 minutes, using only fresh glaze each time. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.

Makes 25 to 30 servings.

Note: An 18-pound bone-in ham serves 25 to 30 people.

Fruit Glaze
3 C. crushed pineapple
1 C. molasses
1 C. corn syrup
1 C. honey
2 C. packed dark brown sugar
3/4 C. barbecue sauce
1 C. orange juice
1 C. white grape juice
2 C. apricot preserves
1/4 C. prepared mustard
2 T. dry mustard
2 T. fresh ginger juice (see note below)
1 C. pineapple juice
3 T. cornstarch mixed with 2/3 C. water

Put crushed pineapple, molasses, syrup, honey, brown sugar, barbecue sauce, orange juice, white grape juice, apricot preserves, mustard, dry mustard, and ginger juice in large mixing bowl and mix well.

In small saucepan, combine pineapple juice and cornstarch-water mixture.

Bring this to a boil to thicken the cornstarch. Pour into large mixing bowl and stir well. Save 2 to 3 cups in container with tight-fitting lid and refrigerate or freeze.

Note: Grate about 1 to 2 inches of a fresh ginger "finger" and squeeze out just the juice. Discard the pulp.
