How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat the oven to 350°. In a medium bowl, mix the sugar with the pepper, cloves and cinnamon. 

Step 2    

Place the ham fat side up on two large pieces of aluminum foil and, using your hands, rub the sugar mixture all over the top and side; it should form a thick 
layer. Wrap the ham tightly in the foil and transfer to a large roasting pan. Bake 
for about 3 hours, until glossy on the outside and a thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the meat registers 125°. Transfer the ham to a work surface 
and let rest in the foil at room temperature until cool enough to handle, about 2 hours. 

Step 3    

Unwrap the ham and slice the meat; transfer to a large platter and tent with foil to keep warm. Pour the accumulated juices into a large measuring cup and spoon off any fat. You should have about 3 1/4 cups.

Step 4    

In a medium saucepan, combine the sliced apples with 2 tablespoons of water. Cover and cook over moderate heat, 
stirring occasionally, until tender, about 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, 
transfer the apples to a blender and puree with the ham juices and vinegar until smooth. Strain the apple jus through 
a fine-mesh sieve set over a gravy 
boat and season with salt. Serve the ham, passing the apple jus at the table.
