Baked ham with maple-pineapple glaze

Yield: 8 servings

Measure Ingredient
½ Partially boned country-style cured ham -- such as Virginia
30 Whole Cloves
½ cup Pineapple juice
3 tablespoons Maple syrup
3 tablespoons Brown sugar

Rinse ham well in several changes of cold water. Place in a large bowl, add water to cover completely and refrigerate overnight.

Remove ham from water and discard the water. Pat ham dry. Place in roasting pan. Using a sharp knife, remove skin and slice off enough fat so that a layer only ½ inch thick remains. Score ham fat with crisscrosses to form a diamond pattern. Stick a clove in each diamond.

Preheat oven to 325~.

In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine pineapple juice, maple syrup and brown sugar and stir until sugar dissolves, about 1 minute.

Brush surface of ham with some of the glaze and place ham in oven.

Bake, basting every 30 minutes with remaining glaze, until ham is golden brown and a thick glaze has formed on the surface, 2 to 2-½ hours. Remove from oven, cover lightly with aluminum foil and let rest for 30 minutes before carving.

To serve, cut ham into slices and arrange on a warmed platter or individual plates. Serve at once.

Serves 8-10.
