Make crosswise slits, 1/2 inch apart, halfway through ham to to where knife touches bone. Place ham in deep bowl and barely cover with water. Stir in sugar. Soak at least 2 days in refrigerator.
Drain. Place ham in roasting pan, lined with enough foil to wrap completely. Pour honey or brown sugar and orange juice all over pork. Stick cloves all over meat. Wrap tightly with foil. Bake at 200° F for 6 to 7 hours or until done.Servings: 6 to 8
