Make It

1. SCORE
ham to allow basting sauce or glaze to penetrate the meat, adding flavor. Use a paring knife to make shallow, even slits diagonally across the top of the ham in one direction, then repeat making slits in opposite direction to form diamond shapes.

2. INSERT
cloves where the cuts meet. This adds more flavor and a decorative garnish.

3. GLAZE
the ham during the last 30 minutes of its cooking time. This allows the flavor to penetrate the ham without burning the glaze, which usually contains some form of sugar.

4. CARVE
the shank or butt half first. Cut along the length of bone across to end of ham, using a fork to hold ham as you cut.
