Preheat oven to 275°F. Position rack in bottom third of the oven.

In a large saucepan, add Tomato Jam, brown sugar, water, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cayenne, granulated garlic and salt. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat until sugar has melted, about 10 minutes.

Place the ham on a wire baking rack over a baking sheet. Brush with the Tomato Jam mixture. Place the onion, shallots and apples around the ham.

Place the pan in the oven and cook for 3 hours, basting the ham every 30 minutes until the cooking is finished.

Remove the ham from the oven and garnish, if desired.
