Prep: 15 min. Cook: 2 hours


20 servings


1 fully cooked bone-in ham (7 to 9 pounds)2 cups plum jam1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce4 tablespoons packed brown sugar3 tablespoons orange juice2 garlic cloves, minced1 teaspoon ground ginger1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder


Preheat oven to 325°. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Using a sharp knife, score the surface of the ham with 1/4 in.-deep cuts in a diamond pattern. In a large saucepan stir together the remaining ingredients. Bring mixture to a boil and simmer until sugar is dissolved, 1-2 minutes. Reserve half the mixture, keep warm. Pour remaining half over the ham. Bake, uncovered, until a thermometer reads 140°, 2 to 2-1/2 hours. Baste occasionally with pan drippings. Cover loosely with foil if ham browns too quickly. Serve with remaining sauce mixture.
