1 cup apple juice
1 cup dark rum
3/4 cup honey
1-1/2 cups golden raisins

1. Preheat oven to 325°. Place ham, cut side down, in roasting pan; cover loosely with aluminum foil. Bake 1 hour.

2. In small saucepan, heat juice, rum and honey to a simmer over medium heat; simmer 10 minutes or until thickened and reduced to about 1-1/2 cups. Remove saucepan from heat; stir in raisins, sugar, mustard and cayenne pepper. Makes about 2 cups glaze.
