RECUse a brand new or well cleaned brush to glaze the ham frequently throughout the cooking process (1-2x per hour of a 3 hr cooking time is good). This means removing the pan from the oven each time to do the glaze and then place it back in the oven

Garnishing a ham with cloves or another type of garnish

Traditionally, cloves can be used to garnish a ham.

  • You can easily add this item to your grocery list and pick it up at the supermarket when you are planning to cook the ham.
  • If it is a spice that you frequently keep on hand in your pantry anyway, that's good too.

When I realized that I had no cloves I did not run out to the store however. I had too much cooking of various dishes to do that day ( Christmas of last year) so I simply sprinkled some parsley on top.

Oh, well. Nevertheless, the ham was still a hit and very delicious.

Cloves are often used as garnish on top of a ham. You can also try using parsley to sprinkle on top of the glazed ham, like I did.
