Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Cut 2.5cm deep criss-crosses into the flat side of the ham.
In a small bowl, mix together the butter and honey. Slather onto the ham, making sure to get in the crevices too. Insert cloves into the ham if desired. Place in a roasting tin.
Bake for 4 hours in the preheated oven or 45 minutes per kilo. The internal temperature should reach 70 degrees C. Baste every 20 minutes with the drippings. Remove, slice, serve and savour.
