1 (12 pound)
1 (20 ounce) can
pineapple rings in heavy syrup
packed brown sugar
1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle
lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage
1 (4 ounce) jar
chopped maraschino cherries
very good. my kids had three servings, a miracle around here. the only thing i can suggest is to keep an eye on the glaze as it thickens in the pan. we added some water half way and checked often when basting.
Delicious flavor but ... the pineapple turned black in a couple hours, and the outside rind would have two if I let it stay uncovered for 4 hours. I covered it midway through the cooking and put the pineapple/cherry's on and uncovered the last hour. SAFE. Also ... the scores in the rind grow. Score maybe 1/8" deep, and may even reduce the heat a bit. ALL IN ALL ... GREAT RECIPE.
This recipe is really great! I bought a pre-cooked spiral sliced ham and just followed the cooking directions, which brought cooking time down to 1.5 hours. I gently rinsed off most of the included glazed first, and I also sprinkled extra brown sugar on the outside. It was very good and very visually impressive.
Delicious. I made this for Easter dinner with a few modifications: used ground cloves and pineapple chunks instead. I threw it all in the crockpot- first hour on high and then about 5 hours on low. Came out so juicy and tender.
Fantastic recipe, my whole family was ranting and raving how delicious and juicy it was. I took note of past ratings and used a whole bottle (20 oz) of 7 up and extra pineapple syrup AND juice. Perfect!!
Simple and does the job. I used pineapple juice (we do not buy thy syrup kind) and replaced the brown sugar with a good quantity of maple syrup, like we do in Quebec where I grew up. I also added a quarter of an onion in the pan for added flavor and covered the ham losely with foil for the first 90 minutes. Baked until meat reached 140F, basting frequently after the first 90 mins. Yummy!!
My dad has used this recipe for 30 years only without the soda. He made the change and loves it!
Great, even without the soda. Just added more pineapple juice and the juice from the cherries. Turned out very good.
