  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C).
  2. Remove the frozen buffet ham from its packaging and place it in a roasting pan.
  3. Score the surface of the ham with shallow cuts in a diamond pattern, if it's not pre-scored.
  4. In a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar, honey, Dijon mustard, and apple cider vinegar. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is smooth.
  5. Pour the glaze over the ham, ensuring it covers the entire surface. If desired, insert whole cloves into the scored intersections for added flavor and decoration.
  6. Cover the roasting pan tightly with aluminum foil.
  7. Bake the ham in the preheated oven for approximately 2 to 2 1/2 hours, or until it reaches an internal temperature of 140°F (60°C). Baste the ham with the glaze every 30 minutes during the cooking process.
  8. Once cooked, remove the ham from the oven and let it rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving.
