Honey Baked Ham

Source: Otis
Whole Cloves
Brown Sugar
Cherries from jar
Pineapple Rings
2 jugs of Apple Juice
Toothpicks (not colored)

Inject either maple syrup/honey into the ham. Then slice in the top of the ham about 1/4 inch deep going diagonally both directions about 1 1/2 inches apart so to make sort of a diamond pattern all over the top of the ham. Where the “x” are press a whole clove down into each center. Drizzle honey or maple syrup on top, I also fill the bottom of the pan with about 2” of apple juice, cover with aluminum foil and bake as directed.

About 1 hour before ham is done, uncover and base w/ apple juice, sprinkle with brown sugar (sparingly). Using tooth picks, place cherries (from a jar) on top of ham. Place pineapple rings around the cherries and bake uncovered the remaining time. Bake uncovered for the last hour. Watch carefully so no parts of the fruit burn. Ham is actually one of the easiest things to bake EVER! It doesn’t get dry and it goes with ANY flavoring. So you can use coke, any type of fruit juice, really whatever the you want!
