This is my mom's recipe for a baked ham. It's one of my favorite things to eat during the holidays, and now that I have the recipe, it might be showing up more often for dinner. :)

It'll take a while to make (count on at least three hours of cook time), but it's very easy once you've got the prep work out of the way!

ingredients:
  • one half ham, uncooked, bone in. ours was about 9 pounds.
  • 20 oz can pineapple rings in syrup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • pinch of cloves
  • pinch of ginger
hardware:
  • aluminum foil
  • baking pan with a cooling rack (you want the ham up out of the fat) (we're using a one time use aluminum pan with a cooling rack inside and a sheet pan underneath)
  • an oven set to 350 F
  • toothpicks
  • a large, sharp knife

Step 2: Prep the ham!

Open the package in the sink and check out the amount of visible fat.

If you have a ton, it's good to trim some off. We didn't trim any - it might look like a lot but it wasn't very thick.
wow, looks so delicious! I want to eat it!

My ham is in the oven right now, and it smells delicious! Serving this for dinner to my roommates tonight with scalloped potatoes and sweet carrots. My only change is that I used fresh pineapple so I had to substitute orange juice in the glaze and added fresh ginger... yum!!
