Use your favorite Mrs. G’s hot pepper jelly to warm up your holiday ham glaze. The combination of sweet, fruit and heat is a perfect complement to succulent baked ham. I think Peach Habanero or Mango Ginger Habanero are great choices, but you can use any flavor you wish.

- 1 (8-1b.) fully cooked ham
- 1/2 cup of pepper jelly
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon of mustard
- Bring the ham to room temperature..Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
- Score through the fat in a diagonal crosshatch pattern without cutting through to the meat. Insert cloves, if you wish, placing them at the intersections of the cuts.
- Put the ham, flat-side down, on a rack in a roasting pan. Pour 1/4 inch water into pan and roast until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the ham registers 130 degrees F, about 2 hours, 30 minutes (about 15 minutes per pound).
- To make glaze: Combine brown sugar, hot pepper jelly and mustard in a saucepan and heat just until melted and combined.
- Increase the oven temperature to 425 degrees F. Pour half of the glaze over the ham and brush to coat. If the water in the bottom of the pan has evaporated, add more.
- Return the ham to the oven and roast, basting every 10 minutes with the remaining glaze, until glossy and well browned, about 30 more minutes.
