2-3 Tbsp. Ground Cinnamon
2 Tbsp. Ground Cloves
Whole Cloves, optional
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar, packed
1 Tbsp. Yellow or Dijon Mustard

-Rub ham with cinnamon and cloves to cover it completely.
-Wrap tightly in foil and bake for 15 minutes per pound of ham.

-Coat ham with thin layer of mustard.  If desired, cut diamond pattern into fat layer and garnish each diamond with a whole clove.
