Honey-Glazed Ham

1 uncooked ham, washed
Whole cloves, divided
1/2 teaspoon peppercorns
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 cup celery leaves
1/2 cup vinegar, divided
1 cup honey, divided
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup chopped, seedless raisins

Place ham in a kettle with warm water completely covering it. Add 1 tablespoon cloves, peppercorns, mustard, celery leaves, 1/4 cup vinegar and 1/4 cup honey. Cook slowly, allowing 25 minutes per pound. Let ham cool in water, then remove skin.

Combine eggs and 1/4 cup honey; brush over surface of the ham. Stick whole cloves in ham at regular intervals and bake at 400°F. for 45 minutes, or until golden brown, basting several times with the drippings.

Combine remaining vinegar, water, remaining honey and raisins in a saucepan. Cook to a syrup. Serve hot with sliced ham.
