Holiday Ham with Pineapple

 Holiday Ham with Pineapple
My husband and I have lots of family living in our area, so any gathering is bound to be big. This ham satisfies everyone and is often requested. One of my brothers-in-law will eat six slices of this ham before helping himself to anything else. We never have leftovers. -Sue Jackson-Tucker, Sunset, Utah
24-28 ServingsPrep: 10 min. + chilling Bake: 1-1/2 hours


  • 1 fully cooked bone-in ham (12 to 14 pounds), spiral-cut or thinly sliced
  • 2 cans (6 ounces each) pineapple juice
  • 1 can (20 ounces) crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 20 to 30 whole cloves
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins


  • Place ham in a roasting pan. Slowly pour pineapple juice over ham so
  • it runs between slices. Spoon pineapple over ham. Sprinkle with
  • brown sugar and cloves. Add raisins to pan juices. Cover and
  • refrigerate overnight.
  • Discard cloves. Cover and bake ham at 325° for 1-1/2 to 2 hours
  • or until a meat thermometer reads 140°, basting every 20
  • minutes. Yield: 24-28 servings.
Editor's Note: If spiral-cut ham is not available, ask your butcher to cut a fully cooked ham into 1/8-in.-thick slices and tie it securely.
