1 fully cooked shank half ham
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground clove
1/8 teaspoon paprika
dash ground ginger
dash ground allspice

Slice ham, using a very sharp knife to cut the ham into very thin
slices around the bone. Do not cut all the way down to the bone.
You want the slices to be quite thin, but not so thin that they
begin to fall apart or off the bone. You may wish to turn the ham
onto its flat end and cut around it starting at the bottom. You
can then spin the ham as you slice around and work your way up.

Mix the remaining ingredients together in a small bowl.

Lay down a couple sheets of wax paper onto a flat surface, such as
your kitchen counter. Pour the sugar mixture onto the wax paper
and spread it around evenly. Pick up the ham and roll it over the
sugar mixture so that it is well coated. Do not coat the flat end
of the ham, just the outer surface which you have sliced through.

Turn the ham onto its flat end on a plate. Use a blow torch with
a medium-size flame to caramelize the sugar. Pass the torch over
the sugar with rapid movement, so that the sugar bubbles and browns,
but does not burn. Rotate the plate so that you can torch the entire
surface of the ham.

Repeat the coating and caramelizing process until the ham has been
well-glazed (some of the sugar mixture may remain). Serve the ham
cold or re-heated.
