Baked Ham with Cherry-Pineapple Glaze


We love ham…..who doesn’t

This glazed ham is so delicious you want to eat the whole thing all at once. But don’t. You won’t be able to move.

One of the great things about ham is really the left overs. They make lunches and dinners later in the week worth the wait.

6 pounds bone in ham
18-20 cloves
1 can tart cherries
1 can pineapple rings

Ham Glaze

6 ounces brown sugar
2 teaspoon nutmeg
4 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
4 1/2 teaspoons pineapple juice
4 tablespoons reserved sryup from cherries

Place ham fat side up on a rack in roasting pan. Do not cover.

Bake at 325°F for approximately 2-2 1/2 hours.

Remove ham from oven about 30 minutes before it is done.

Drain off drippings. Score ham 1/4 inch deep in diamond pattern. Stud with whole cloves.

Cover with glaze.

HAM GLAZE: Combine ingredients for glaze. Spoon over ham. Repeat if heavier glaze is desired.

Use toothpicks to hold pineapple rings and cherries on ham during final heating.

Return ham to oven and bake until internal temperature reaches 155°F
