    Place ham in a roasting pan and allow it to rest at room temperature for 30 to 45 minutes.
  2. Step 2

    Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  3. Step 3

    Mix apple cider, orange juice, and vinegar together in a bowl.
  4. Step 4

    Open the spirals of the ham to reveal more of the meat's surface area. Pour the juice mixture over the ham. Cover with aluminum foil.
  5. Step 5

    Bake in the preheated oven until heated through, about 45 minutes.
  6. Step 6

    Whisk maple syrup, dark brown sugar, white sugar, mustard, soy sauce, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, red pepper flakes, and cloves together in a saucepan over medium heat until shimmering and smooth, about 2 minutes. Simmer 2 minutes more; remove glaze from heat to cool a bit.
  7. Step 7

    Increase oven temperature to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  8. Step 8

    Remove aluminum foil from heated ham. Brush 1/3 the glaze atop the ham to cover it completely.
  9. Step 9

    Return ham to the hot oven. Bake, uncovered, about 8 minutes. Repeat adding glaze and baking for 8 minutes more.
  10. Step 10

    Remove ham and baste a third time with remaining 1/3 glaze. Continue baking until glaze is caramelized and bubbly, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and let rest 10 to 15 minutes before slicing. Drizzle pan juices on top.
