1 fully cooked bone-in ham (7 to 9 pounds)
1/2 cup apricot halves, drained
1/2 cup stone-ground mustard
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons grated fresh gingerroot
1 tablespoon whole peppercorns
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
1Preheat oven to 325°. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Using a sharp knife, score surface of ham with 1/4-in.-deep cuts in a diamond pattern. Cover and bake 1-3/4 to 2-1/4 hours or until a thermometer reads 130°.
2Meanwhile, place remaining ingredients in a food processor; process until blended. Remove ham from oven. Increase oven setting to 425°. Spread apricot mixture over ham.
3Bake ham, uncovered, 15-20 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 140°. If desired, increase oven setting to broil; broil 2-4 minutes or until golden brown.
