  1. Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C).
  2. Place ham on a rack in a shallow baking pan. Place 1/2 cup (125 mL) water or juice into pan. Bake covered, in preheated oven for about 1 hour.
  3. Meanwhile, in a saucepan combine the jam, vinegar, corn syrup and cinnamon. Cook and stir until boiling. Reduce heat; simmer 2 minutes. Stir in almonds. Remove from heat.
  4. About 20 minutes before the ham is done, spoon 3/4 cup (175 mL) of the glaze over the ham, basting occasionally. Remove from oven; place on a heated serving platter. Stir the 2 tbsp (30 mL) water or fruit juice into the remaining glaze; heat and serve with the ham.
