HAWAIIAN HOLIDAY GLAZED HAM
- Heat oven to 325°F. Lightly score skin of ham. Place ham, cut side down, in roasting pan or baking dish with high sides. Drain pineapple, reserving juice; set pineapple aside. Pour juice over ham. Rub ham with mustard and ½ cup of the brown sugar.
- With toothpicks, attach pineapple rings, cherries and fruit cocktail pieces to ham. Tent with foil. Bake for 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, mix the corn syrup, pineapple juice, cloves and remaining ½ cup brown sugar. Cook and stir until the sugar has melted and mixture has turned into a thick glaze. Remove from the heat.
- Remove foil from ham. Using a basting brush, brush glaze over ham. Bake 30 minutes to 1 hour longer or until ham is warmed through and a meat thermometer reads 140°F, basting occasionally with pan juices.
- Slice ham with a large slicing knife like the CHICAGO CUTLERY® INSIGNIA® STEEL CARVING KNIFE before serving. Garnish with fruit.
