Hawaiian Ham

Ingredients:
1 6-lb fully-cooked, bone-in ham
1 fresh pineapple
2 6-oz. cans pineapple juice
1 cup brown sugar

Directions:
Preheat oven to 325° F. Place the ham, cut side down, in a roasting pan. With a sharp knife, remove the skin from the pineapple, slice it into 1/2-inch slices, and cut out the cores from the slices. Pin the slices onto the ham with toothpicks. Bake ham in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes.

While the ham is baking, mix the pineapple juice and brown sugar in a microwave-safe ceramic or glass bowl and microwave on medium power until the glaze is boiling and slightly thickened. After 30 minutes, pour about half the glaze evenly over the ham and pineapple. Cook the ham for another 30 minutes, then pour the rest of the brown sugar mixture over it. Continue baking the ham until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest section reads 140° F, about 30 more minutes. Allow to cool for 15 minutes, and serve.

char, The picture is just stock art. If you want to put cloves in your ham, press them in before you cook it, but the recipe is fine without them.

The recipe doesn’t say anything about the cloves shown in the picture. Do you just put them on the topside or all over the ham?

Thanks

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
