Ingredients

  • 1 (8-10 pound) bone-in ham
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, honey, mustard, and cloves. Rub the mixture all over the ham.
  3. Place the ham in a baking dish and bake for 1 hour or until the internal temperature reaches 140 degrees F.
  4. Remove the ham from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
  5. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the chicken broth, cornstarch, and water. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and cook until thickened, about 2 minutes.
  6. Once the gravy has thickened, reduce the heat to low and add the sliced ham to the pan. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  7. Serve the ham with the sweet gravy.
