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!

Step 1: What you'll need:

  • 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
  • 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


<p>This web page sucks! They don't let you download the recipe without buying a Pro subscription. If you try to just print this, it prints a mess.</p>
<p>You're really complaining on a website that's free and where people can share amazing things about how they're trying to make enough money with paid features to keep the rest of the website free?</p>
<p>You don't know how to cut/copy and paste? Now that really sux.</p>
<p>just cut around the bone, then make slices parallel to the cut surface.</p>
<p>Very Nice.</p>

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!!
Orange juice and ginger sound amazing. :D <br /> <br />I wish I was eating at your house tonight, haha
Oh man. What a winner. The verdict is: DELISH. Thanks for guiding me through my first go at ham, now I'll have amazing sandwiches for days!
This was an awesome recipe!!! My whole family loved it!!! Thanks!!!
You're welcome. :D I'm so happy you made it!
and another victory for jessy! <br>

Wow this looks delicious! I've never made a ham before, but now I want to!
