- Preheat oven to 300–325°F. If using a cured ham with skin on, cut skin away from ham, but leave the fat. Rub ham with cinnamon and cloves to cover completely.
- Wrap tightly in foil and bake for 15 minutes per pound. Cool ham slightly and scrap away cinnamon and cloves: discard.
- Coat ham with thin smear of mustard. If desired, cut diamond pattern into fat layer and place a whole clove in each diamond as a garnish.
- Combine brown sugar with flour. Pat brown sugar over ham to evenly cover fat layer. Use additional brown sugar, if needed, to thoroughly coat ham.
- Return ham, uncovered, to oven for 30–35 minutes to melt and caramelize the sugar. Cool before slicing and serving.
