Overall average ham. Used an 8 pound, bone-in, pre-cooked spiral sliced ham. Did not use the ground cloves based on other's comments. Also omitted the ginger since I simply forgot to buy it from the store. Used all the other spices as called for in the recipe. For the 8 pound ham I decreased the amount of whole cloves to 10. And then the peel of one orange as recipes calls for. Cloves and orange dominated the flavor. Not the greatest combination of tastes. If you prefer a simple ham, I think using good old brown sugar will be enough. Also very very tender. Sprial slices just fell to pieces when pulling apart, that in itself is neither good or bad, but just a personal preference for me to have full slices of meat. Not piece-meal bits. A bit of a turn off. Overall, OK. Totally agree with Elvis Presley 99's review. Too floral indeed.
