1 (4.5 pound)
butt-end smoked ham
1 (15.25 ounce) can
pineapple rings, drained
1 (4 ounce) jar
maraschino cherries, drained
I grew up having ham prepared as written. This time I varied it just a bit for us diabetics. Had a 11 lb. fully-cooked butt ham to work with. At 15 minutes a pound that was 2.75 hours of total cooking time in a 325 degree oven. First I scored the entire ham and stuck whole cloves in the intersection of the cuts. This really enhances the flavor and the entire house smelled divine! Then I made a paste of 1 cup brown splenda, 2 tbsp dijon mustard and just enough pineapple juice from the can to make it moist. I use the pineapple in water instead of heavy syrup to reduce the sugar content. Adjust the amount of mustard to your taste. I like it sweet and tangy. I smothered the ham with the paste. Then tented it in heavy duty foil. Cook for 1.5 hours. My Mother never tented her hams but this is the step that keeps the ham super moist. Make a basting sauce with the rest of the pineapple juice and 1/2 cup of cherry juice from the maraschino cherry jar. Add 1/2 cup of OJ. Then add 1 cup brown splenda and 2 tbsp dijon. This makes a thin liquid basting sauce. I used a soup spoon to ladle it over the ham. After 1.5 hours take the ham out of the oven and remove the foil. Now stick the marinated pineapple and cherries on the ham with toothpicks. It only takes pineapple an hour or so to caramelize to perfection. So, put them on now not at the beginning. Ladle the sauce over the ham every 15 minutes until done (5 times). Let it sit for at least 15 minutes. Then carve. YUMMY!!!!!!
Very tasty. Unfortunately I did not have the pineapple slices or the cherries but tried it anyway. Watch it after about an hour and fifteen minutes because I felt the drippings got a little too dark and and I was worried it may taste burnt but got it out in time.
My mom said this was the best ham she's ever had! We planned to make it for Christmas but the weather fouled up our plans so we made it for Easter. Delicious and easy to make. Gives the ham great flavor and keeps it moist.
my ham came out superb.... excellent recipe... i used 2 cups pineapple juice, 1 cup of dark brown sugar , dry mustard and 8 oz frozen orange juice..to make my sauce... it was delicious... as you mix your ingredients you taste it... for balancing at your own taste... I added cloves to the ham and basted with my sauce....and added some to the pan... cover it with aluminium foil for 1 hour and1/2 .. but basted every 1/2 hour .. afterwards i uncover it.. and basted every 15 minutes... for another 1 hour.... Later I broiled it for 10 minutes... basting it every 5 minutes... just for coloring and the crisp on top... My ham came out supper tender and juicy.... I put the pineapples and cherries after it was cooked... Once the ham was sliced .. I added the juicy from the pan on top of it.... THANK YOU FOR THIS RECIPE... ITS A KEEPEER.
this is old-fashioned good. Since I'm not fond of picking whole cloves out of my teeth, I substitute a half tsp of ground cloves to the sugar/juice mixture. Improves the taste and saves my molars!
