  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water

Nutritional Facts

5 ounces ham with 1 tablespoon sauce equals 300 calories, 4 g fat (1 g saturated fat), 70 mg cholesterol, 912 mg sodium, 44 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 23 g protein.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Using a sharp knife, score surface of ham with 1/4-in.-deep cuts in a diamond pattern; insert a clove in each diamond. Cover and bake 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until a thermometer reaches 130°.

  3. Remove ham from oven. Increase oven setting to 425°. Pour remaining pineapple mixture over ham. In a small bowl, mix light brown sugar and remaining dark brown sugar; spread over ham.
  4. Bake ham, uncovered, 10-15 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 140°. Serve with reserved sauce. Yield: 20 servings.

The best ham we've ever had! Even the ham-haters liked it!

MY REVIEW

We loved this ham. It was moist and tasty. I forgot to use the cloves and it was still really good. This will probably be our go-to ham recipe.
