1.
One day in advance, prepare Marmalade Mess Marinade: Mix together marmalade, ginger, garlic, mustard, brown sugar and black pepper. Cover and refrigerate.


2. One hour before baking ham: Remove ham from refrigerator. Line baking pan with aluminum foil and place ham in pan. Spread the marmalade mixture over the top of the ham and between the slices. Stud top with whole cloves. Cover pan loosely with foil.


3. Put ham into a preheated 375-degree oven and bake 40 minutes. Remove from oven and reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees. Spoon pan juices over ham, cover and bake another 20 minutes. Uncover and continue baking 10 minutes or until ham is warmed through. Remove from oven, tent with foil and let rest 15 to 20 minutes before carving.


4. Arrange ham on a platter and serve with a bowl of the Mustard and Parsley Sauce on the side.
