Preheat oven to 350 degrees FRemove netting! Then place picnic ham on a large roasting pan or baking dish, fat side up. Pour ¾ cup of water into the bottom of the baking dish.
Cover roasting pan with foil and bake in the oven for 1 hour. This allows the rind to be removed easily. Meanwhile, make the glaze.
After baking for 1 hour, take the ham out of the oven and remove the foil. Peel off the rind from the ham and discard. The rind will be hot, so I used tongs. If desired, you can trim some of the fat off the fat cap, but I usually leave a lot of it on the ham. This is what it will look like.
While the ham is cooking, whisk all the glaze ingredients together in bowl or pourable measuring cup (I prefer to do this so I can pour it right onto the ham)
Scoring; Cut cross check slits into the fat and about ½ inch into the meat of the ham. * I cut a little deeper but it was nice because it really soaks up the flavor!
Pour ⅔ of the glaze over the ham.
Bake for another 2 hours, uncovered. BUT baste it with the remaining glaze after 1 hour, then again after 30 minutes, dividing the remaining glaze between the two basting sessions.* Use a BBQ basting type brush ( in photo) to ensure you get in the slits, You can use a pastry brush too!
Once done, let the ham rest for about 5-10 minutes after you take it out of the oven, then carve the ham into preferred serving slices. * I like it a little thicker.
Serve with scalloped potatoes and veggies or whatever else you desire.
