Molasses-Glazed Ham

1 (6-8 lb.) fully cooked ham
About 20 whole cloves
1/4 c. molasses
1/4 c. prepared mustard
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg

Remove skin from ham; place ham, fat side up, on baking rack. Score fat in a diamond design and stud with cloves. Insert meat thermometer, making sure it does not touch fat or bone. Bake ham at 325° for one hour 15 minutes. Remove ham from oven. Combine remaining ingredients; baste ham with molasses mixture. Return ham to oven and bake additional 30-40 minutes or until meat thermometer registers 140°, basting frequently with glaze. Makes 12-15 servings.
