Baked ham is an Easter tradition at our house. The glaze features my dried homegrown basil. My husband absolutely loves ham, so I get a large one to be sure we have leftovers. -- Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin
Prep: 15 min. Bake: 2 hours + standing

1 fully cooked bone-in ham (8 to 10 pounds)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon stone-ground mustard
2 teaspoons dried basil
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Score the surface of the ham, making diamond shapes 1/2 in. deep. Bake at 325° for 1-3/4 hours.
In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Spoon over ham. Bake 15-30 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 140°. Let stand for 10-15 minutes before slicing. Yield: 12-16 servings.
