Heat the oven to 325 degrees, and in a bowl, mix 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1/4 cup of honey, the zest of 1 orange and 1/4 cup of orange juice. Also add 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice and about 6 scrapes over a rasp of fresh nutmeg.

Roll out aluminum foil to surround a 6- or 7-pound ham, and place the ham in the center. Peel back the layers, and place a sprig of thyme in alternating layers. Pour half of the glaze over the ham, wrap it in the foil, and place in a roasting pan. Fill the pan with about an inch of water, and roast about 20 minutes per pound.

Bring the rest of the glaze to a simmer in a pot, and allow it to thicken as it rests. Turn the oven up to 400 degrees, remove the ham, and carefully pull back the foil over the top. Spread the rest of the glaze over the ham, and put it back into the oven, uncovered, for 15 additional minutes. Remove the ham, and allow it to rest before slicing.
