    I bake my ham for 1/2 the time needed, remove from oven & score it & then spread with a paste made of brown sugar & regular yellow mustard. Return to oven & finish baking. I just eyeball the ingredients, starting with about a cup of brown sugar & stir in a couple tablespoons of mustard, you want it thick & paste-like to stick to the hot ham. It makes a yummy glaze!

    I do about the same as Cali but I put pineapple rings on mine also. I have used 7-up to bake my ham with and that gives a nice flavor.

    Got this idea from Resa in the Backyard. She suggested marmalade, it was delicious.

    My Glaze is about the same, brown sugar, mustard and ginger ale.

    I use brown sugar, pineapple juice, and cloves and then baste every 20 to 30 minutes. Coke is also good to use on ham.

    I use my great grandmother's plum sauce, which has whole cooked plums in it. I put some plums in the scored parts of ham skin then spoon sauce over the rest. Cover with foil & bake. For years I have gotten so many compliments on my ham this way.

    My mother-in-law uses cloves and pineapple rings. She takes the drippings and makes a pineapple gravy for mashed potatoes. It's absolutely wonderful!
