1 (15-pound) bone-in ham
18 whole cloves
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

- Remove the skin and trim excess fat from ham. Lightly score ham by making diagonal cuts in a crosshatch pattern. Stud with whole cloves.
- Shake flour in oven roasting bag and place in a roasting pan. Place the ham in the bag and close securely. Cut a few slits along the top, inserting a meat thermometer.
