Recipe: Latin Baked Ham with Rum and Pineapple

4 tablespoons butter
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
¼ cup dark rum
¼ cup Cider mustard
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 cup crushed pineapple
1 fully cooked ham (7 pounds)
¼ cup whole cloves

Put butter, brown sugar and cinnamon in saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Cook until bubbling, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat; let cool. Slowly add rum, mustard, lemon zest and juice, and pineapple. Blend. Reserve.

Remove ham from refrigerator 1 hour before roasting. Using sharp knife, score skin in crosshatch pattern. Stud each square with a clove.

Preheat oven to 425°F. Place rack in bottom of roasting pan; place ham on rack. Pour 1 cup water into pan. Roast for 30 minutes. Turn down heat to 375°F; roast until center of ham reaches 148°F. Turn up heat to 400°F; baste ham with glaze. When center of ham reaches 155°F, remove (total roasting time: 2 to 2½ hours). Let ham rest for 30 minutes to 1 hour before carving.
