  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Trim the skin of the ham with a sharp knife. Score the ham by making long vertical and horizontal cuts. Stud the ham with the cloves. Place the ham on a rack, in a shallow roasting pan. Cover the ham loosely with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. In a mixing bowl, whisk 1 cup of molasses, mustard, and allspice together. Remove the ham from the oven and brush the entire ham with the glaze . Place the ham back in the oven and continue baking for 1 1/2 hours, basting every 15 minutes. With a fork, prick each sweet potato. Rub each sweet potato with the remaining molasses. Lay each sweet potato on a small piece of foil. Place a teaspoon of butter on top of each sweet potato. Wrap each sweet potato in the foil and place on a baking sweet. Bake the potatoes for about 1 hour or until the potatoes are tender. Remove the potatoes from the oven and discard the foil. Place the carved ham on a platter. Serve the ham with the sweet potatoes. Open the sweet potatoes and drizzle with melted butter and salt and pepper. Serve with biscuits.
