Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Meanwhile, start with the apples. Cut the apples into quarters and de-core them (remove seeds and ends, no need to peel the skin). Using a mandoline, thinly slice 2-3 apples (depending on the size of your ham). Reserve these slices to be inserted between the slices of the ham. For the remaining apples, use the thicker setting on the mandoline. These slices will go on the bottom of the baking dish.
  2. Place the thick slices of apple on the bottom of a large baking dish. Place the ham on top of the apples, cut-side down. Add the thinly sliced apples between each slice of ham (usually 2-3 slices of apples will fit for each layer).
  3. In a bowl, mix the brown sugar and the apple pie spices mix together.
  4. Using your hands, rub the mustard all over the ham (including the slices of apples sticking out from the ham). Next, rub the sugar and spice mixture all over the ham (like you did with the mustard). [You may or may not use all of the mustard/sugar mix. Use enough to liberally cover the entire ham.]
  5. Add the orange juice to the bottom of the baking dish. Make sure there is enough orange juice to cover the entire bottom of the dish. If not enough, add more orange juice.
  6. Bake 10 minutes for every pound of ham (for a 16 pound ham, that is 160 minutes). Let the ham bake for 1 hour. After the first hour, begin basting the ham using the juices at the bottom of the baking dish every 20 minutes until the ham is done.
  7. Remove ham from oven. Let cool for a few minutes before serving. When serving, use the apple gravy at the bottom of the baking dish to add a little oompf to your amazing ham.
