1.2 kilos Ham, fat scored with a knife in a shallow crisscross pattern
8 – 12 pieces cloves
1/2 cup White Sugar (for glazing Ham)
1 cup White Sugar (for sauce)
1 tbsp Butter
1 cup Apple Juice
1/2 cup Apple, peeled, cored and cut into cubes
1/4 cup Raisins
1 tbsp Cornstarch
1 tbsp Water

1. Preheat oven to 400F.
2. Stud the ham with cloves. Brush the ham with 1/2 cup sugar and bake in the oven until the sugar caramelizes and fat is rendered from the ham.
3. In a preheated sauce pot, caramelize the 1 cup sugar over medium flame, then add the butter. Once it is golden in color add the apple juice, apples and raising. Gently boil for 5 minutes.
4. Dilute cornstarch in water and add to the sauce to thicken the mixture. Allow to cool down and serve on the side.
