This was delicious. I scored the top of my 6 1/2 pound semi boneless half fully cooked ham and then sprinkled ground clove over it. Covered with foil and baked at 325 for 90 minutes. Took out of oven to add glaze. Note: I added a tablespoon of honey mustard to the pineapple juice and brown sugar mixture. Poured on top and brushed it around to make sure the glaze covered all areas. I then put 6 pieces of pineapple on top. Used toothpicks to secure. Put back in oven for 30 minutes. Checked it and spooned the glaze over the top and put back in oven for about 10 more minutes until it reached 140. It was perfect!!

I tried this recipe but did not have pineapple on hand so used sliced apples and fresh apple cider with the brown sugar. The kids said it was Awesome

I have been using this recipe for decades except that I add a tablespoon of yellow mustard to the pineapple juice and brown sugar glaze for a little extra zing.

I made this for my husband's family Christmas. My in-laws are very picky, and they loved this even over the Honey-Baked ham. It's a keeper!
