Just cut the string and presto—the big ham just falls apart in even slices!


  • 1 (6 lb.) canned ham
  • 1 (1 lb.) jar apricot preserves (about c.)
  • Whole cloves


  • Slice ham and tie together with string. Your meat dealer may slice the ham on his sheer and tie it up for you.
  • Place ham, fat side up, on rack in shallow baking pan. Spread apricot preserves over top. Stud with cloves.
  • Heat in slow oven (325°) 15 minutes per pound. Baste with pan juices 3 or 4 times while baking.
  • Place on platter to serve. Cut and remove string.
