1 fully cooked spiral cut ham (approx. 9 lb.)
1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup dark rum
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
3 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. allspice
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Mix all of the ingredients (except the ham) together thoroughly.
Run the mixture through a food processor to blend
everything completely and to make the mint leaves very fine.
In a small pan, slowly bring ingredients to a boil, stirring often.
Remove from heat immediately.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Remove all packing materials from ham and place, flat side down, in
an open, shallow roasting pan. DO NOT COVER.
Bake for about 1/2 hour at 325 degrees F. Remove ham from oven and brush glaze on ham and in between slices.
Put ham back in oven and continue to bake at 325 degrees F for another 30 to 60 minutes, or until internal temperature is 140 degrees F.
Remove ham from oven and increase temperature to 425 degrees F. Brush ham again with glaze, on top and in between slices. Return ham to oven for about 15 minutes.
Remove from oven. Remove; serve.
