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
  • Total Time
    Prep: 10 min. + chilling Bake: 1-1/2 hours
  • Makes
    24-28 servings

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  • 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 thermometer reads 140°, basting every 20 minutes.
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.

    Very simple to make. My family asks for this ham every year for Christmas.

    Love those spiral-cut hams! And this recipe is easy and elegant. Even better, it's a do-ahead, so you can serve a great-looking entree with a minimum of fuss. Everyone will think you're a great cook, even if (like me) you're not.
