Preheat the oven at 350F.
In a medium saucepan, whisk together all of the ingredients to make the glaze and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer over medium heat. Stir the glaze every often for about 15-20 minutes until it is thickened and reduced. Add unsalted cubed butter into the glaze until it is nicely melted. This will thicken the glaze.
Using a roasting pan, pour 2 cups of water into bottom of the pan. If you have a roasting rack, place roasting rack inside the pan.
Using 2 large pieces of aluminum foil, wrap one of the foils on the bottom of the ham. Brush all over with some of the glaze and in between slices. Tightly wrap ham with foil and place on its side on the bottom of pan (or roasting rack).
Bake ham for about 2 hours. When the 2 hours are up, remove the ham from the oven and increase the temperature to 400F. Carefully unfold foil to brush the ham all over with some of the glaze.
Continue to bake the ham for another 20-30 minutes or until edges are golden brown and caramelized.
Remove the ham from oven and brush again using the remaining glaze. Use a spoon to grab the juices from bottom of pan and pour all over the ham. Lightly cover with foil.
Let the ham cool for 15 minutes. Continue to spoon more juices all over ham and serve with any remaining glaze.
