1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 cup bourbon

3. Remove from the heat, add the bourbon, oranje juice, mustard and cloves. Mix well.

4. Remove any skin and fat from the ham and place ham in the baking dish. Make 1/4 inch cuts in the ham in a diamond pattern.

5. Pour the glaze over the ham.

6. Bake for 2 to 2 1/2 hours, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest portion of the ham registers 140F, basting every 15 minutes with the glaze.
