Baked Ham with Pineapple-Cherry Sauce

  • 10 - 12 lb. ham - fully cooked, boneless or semi-boneless
  • 1 can (16 oz.) sliced pineapple - drain & reserve juice
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. prepared yellow mustard
  • maraschino cherries

Preparation -
Place the ham in an open roasting pan. Drain the pineapple and reserve the juice. To secure the pineapple slices... Count the number of pineapple slices. Place an equal amount of cherries on toothpicks.(one cherry per toothpick) Stick the toothpicks into the ham. Place a pineapple slice around each cherry. You´ll probably have enough to cover the top of the ham. Use additional pineapple and cherries to cover the whole ham, if desired. Combine the reserved pineapple juice, brown sugar, and mustard in a microwave safe cup or small bowl. Microwave on high for about 1-1/2 minutes or until the brown sugar is melted and the ingredients are blended, stopping to stir a few times. Pour the sauce over the ham. Cover the ham loosely with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Bake at in a preheated oven at 325º for about 20 minutes per pound. Baste with syrup a few times during baking. Remove from the oven about 10 minutes before slicing. Remove the pineapple slices and marachino cherries from the ham. Slice the ham to the desired thickness and arrange the slices on a serving platter. Garnish the platter of ham with the pineapple slices and marachino cherries, if desired. Serve with pineapple-cherry sauce.
