Perfect Glaze for Home-Baked Ham

Bake ham according to wrapper directions.
When ham has reached it's finished cooking time/temperature, remove it from the oven. Slice away any rind that is covering the fatty area. Cut a row of parallel slits through the fat - about 1" apart. Turn the ham and cut a second row of slits to make a pattern of squares or diamond shapes. Insert 1 whole clove in the center of each fat square. Spread yellow or brown Mustard over the entire ham surface and pack Light Brown Sugar over the mustard. (I use my hands) Return the ham to the oven for 10-20 minutes until the glaze is glossy and beautiful. It never fails!
