Ingredients
  • One whole fresh pineapple, cored and cut into ½ inch slices, ½ cup juice reserved or One can Dole Pineapple Rings in natural juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • One jar Smucker's Sugar Free Apricot or Orange Preserves
  • ¼ cup cider vinegar
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon whole cloves - to simmer in glaze and stick into the ham
  • 3 to 5 pound fully cooked ham
Instructions
  1. Sauté the pineapple slices in the butter in a large non stick skillet over high heat until they begin to caramelize and have some color.
  2. Lower heat, add the preserves, reserved pineapple juice, vinegar, 10 whole cloves, a big pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper - cook until thick and syrupy, 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. Place ham into a small roasting pan, add ¼ cup water, score the fat and poke whole cloves into the surface.
  4. Roast in preheated 350 degree oven until hot - about 8 minutes per pound.
  5. Increase oven temp to 375. Spoon some of the glaze and pan juices over ham, return to oven and cook until some browned edges are created - 10 to 15 minutes - watch carefully so it does not burn.
