Recipe Notes:>> Whole hams usually weigh at least 15 pounds; ham halves, which are labeled either "shank" or "butt end," are more manageable. A bone-in shank is easier to carve than the butt end, which contains part of the hipbone.
Yield: 24 servings (serving size: about 3 & 1/2 ounces ham and 2 teaspoons sauce)
1 (8-pound) 33%-less-sodium smoked, fully cooked ham half
2 tablespoons apricot preserves
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup gingersnap crumbs (about 9 cookies, finely crushed)
1 & 1/2 cups apricot preserves
1/2 cup dry Marsala wine
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1.. Preheat oven to 325*F.
2.. To prepare ham, line a broiler pan with foil. Trim fat and rind from ham. Score outside of ham in a diamond pattern. Place ham on prepared pan. Bake at 325*F for 1 hour. Remove the ham from oven, and cool slightly. Increase oven temperature to 375*F.
3.. Combine 2 tablespoons preserves and 2 tablespoons mustard, stirring with a whisk. Combine the sugar and crumbs. Brush preserves mixture over ham. Carefully press crumb mixture onto preserves mixture (some crumb mixture will fall onto pan). Bake at 375*F for 45 minutes or until a thermometer registers 145*F. Place ham on a platter; let stand 15 minutes before slicing.
4.. To prepare sauce, combine 1 & 1/2 cups preserves and remaining ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook 5 minutes. Serve sauce with ham.

Don't know how I missed this! Thanks!
You even missed the last instruction of the recipe!........and so did I, until just now!

Those bran muffins look delicious; I love bran muffins.
They are good...what I like about them too ....is that they are "ready"....when ya want 'em......just reach in the frig....haul out the tub, scoop into muffin tray and bake as many as you "need"....almost instantly!
This looks great...I would not use the anchovys though...too salty for me.
Rinse them off a bit then...This would be one of the few times that I would eat anchovies! I'm not a huge lover of them either BUT I do thinkthey would make this better!
