Score the outside of the ham in a 1” diamond pattern (That means cut almost through the fat in a diamond pattern. It’s easiest if you cut a 1” strip of cardboard or foil or something, and use that to make your lines.) and put a whole clove at each point of the diamonds. Then bake according to the directions on the packet. You can make a glaze of brown sugar and either apple juice or orange juice if you want to, but it's not necessary. 

Figure you get about 12 ounces of meat from each pound of ham (because of the bone). The bones will be about the same size regardless of how big the ham is, so you might as well get a big one and have lots of leftovers. If you get a ten pound ham, you can serve eight ounces of meat (about a cup and a half, if it were cubed) per person and use just barely over half the ham. That's a bigger serving than you need, but it's Easter, after all, or a Spring celebration dinner.
