-Pre heat oven to 165 degrees C. Score ham (with a knife, make shallow cuts of about 1/3 deep that extend all the way from the top to the bottom of the whole ham, leaving about three centimetres between the cuts).

-Make the cuts going in the opposite direction, to create diamond pattern on the ham. After scoring your ham, stud with the whole cloves (poke a clove in-between the cuts). Place the ham on a foiled baking tray, set aside.
