Remove skin from ham. Score fat on ham in a diamond design, and stud with whole cloves. Combine preserves, lemon juice, cinnamon and cloves in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Set aside.
Place ham, fat side up, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Insert meat thermometer, making sure it does not touch fat or bone. Bake, uncovered, for 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until thermometer reads 140°F (18 to 24 minutes per pound); baste every 15 to 20 minutes with the sauce.
Serves 8 to 10 people with leftovers.

Habanero-Peach preserves are usually for sale online through Amazon. Also, atop your morning bagel and cream cheese, they give a whole new meaning to the term "hot breakfast."
