Glazed Ham

Nope, I haven’t had my gall bladder out ~ some days are better than others.  May 11 can’t get here soon enough!

Anyway, I made this ham recipe on Easter.  It really flavored up the ham really well and it was fairly easy.  The hardest thing was toothpicking the pineapple and cherries on. I adapted the recipe from Taste of Home.

Glazed Ham

1 (8-10 pound) ham
1 (20 ounce) can pineapple slices
maraschino cherries
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar

Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Put the ham on a rack in a baking pan. Place pineapple and cherries on ham with toothpicks.

Pat the brown sugar over the entire ham. Gently pour the pineapple juice (leftover from slices) over the top of the ham. Some of the brown sugar will fall off ~ that’s OK.

Bake uncovered, according to the directions that come with your ham. Mine baked for about 3 hours. While the ham is baking, baste frequently with the brown sugar/pineapple juice in the bottom of the pan.

Makes 18-20 servings.

Happy Cooking!
