  • 1 large onion, quartered with root end intact
  • 1, 5 to 7 pound smoked ham, shank end
  • 3/4 cup apricot jam
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 8 sprigs fresh thyme, stripped
  • 3 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 4 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoon molasses
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • pinch ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Score the ham with a cross hatch pattern through the thick layer of skin and fat. Arrange the onions in the center of a foil lined roasting pan and set the ham on top of them. Bake for 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, stir together the apricot jam, water, thyme leaves, mustard, 3 tablespoons of the vinegar, molasses, Worcestershire, allspice and cloves in a saucepan. Whisk over medium heat until the jam has dissolved and the sauce is smooth, about 4 minutes. After the ham has baked for 1 hour, brush with apricot mixture every 15 minutes for another 45 minutes or until nicely glazed. Transfer the ham to a serving platter, tent with foil and set aside while making the sauce.
  3. Discard the onions, remove foil and pour the sauce into a skillet. Add the broth and bring to a boil over high heat. In a small bowl, mix the butter and flour together to form a paste. Whisk into pan juices and let sauce simmer until thickened like gravy. Finish with remaining tablespoon vinegar and season with salt and pepper to taste.
