Directions:
1. Place the ham cut side down in a large baking pan.
2. Cut 1/4 inch into the top of the ham with a knife and spiral around and down leaving 2 inches between rows until you hit the bottom.
3. Cut spiraling up in the opposite direction creating diamond shaped crosses.
4. Cover the ham in foil and insert a meat thermometer.
5. Bake in a preheated 250F oven until the ham reaches 130F, about 3-4 hours.
