1 small orange, thinly sliced
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
1/2 tsp ground cloves

2. Place ham on rack in open roasting pan. Insert meat thermometer into center of meat. Bake 20 minutes per pound or until thermometer reaches 140 degrees F.
3. Meanwhile, combine honey, juice and cloves in a saucepan. Simmer about 15 minutes until the mixture is reduced to a syrupy consistency.
4. Remove ham from oven 30 minutes before end of cooking time; cut off any tough outer skin and discard.
