Roast Smoked Country Ham with Cider Glaze

16 pounds fully cooked whole smoked bone in country ham
1/4 cup whole cloves
3 cups apple cider w/o preservatives
1 1/2 cups dry sherry

Place ham in large roasting pan. Stud ham all over with cloves by inserting them into the skin. Pour 1 1/2 c. of the apple cider and 3/4 cup of sherry over the ham. Let marinate, covered and refrigerated, for at least 2 hours (preferably overnight), turning meat over once or twice. Preheat oven to 350F. Roast ham until hot throughout and internal temp reaches 140F, about 12 minutes per pound, or 3 hrs and 15 minutes total roasting time. A knife inserted into the ham should be warm to the touch when withdrawn after 30 seconds.

After 1 hour of roasting, pour the remaining 1 1/2 c. apple cider and 3/4 c. sherry over the ham and baste every 15 minutes. If marinade dries up, add more cider or sherry. Place ham on carving board and let sit loosely covered with foil for 10-15 minutes before carving. Remove excess fat from pan and heat juices over medium low heat. Cut ham into thin slices and top with warm juices.

Serves 10-12.
