10-12lbbutt portion hambone-in spiral cut
20ozcan crushed pineapplewith juice (see notes)
2cdark brown sugar
20ozpineapple ringsmore if desired
10maraschino cherriesmore if desired
Preheat the oven to 375°. To a saucepan, add the crushed pineapple with juices, brown sugar, dijon mustard, mustard powder, clove, ginger, and white pepper. Bring the glaze to boil over medium heat then reduce the heat to low for the sauce to thicken and become syrupy; about 6-8 minutes. Allow it to cool for 5 minutes or so.
Place the ham into a double foil-lined roasting pan and pour the glaze. Secure each pineapple ring and cherry in the center with toothpicks.
Cover the roasting pan with more aluminum foil and bake the ham for 1 hour and 20 minutes in a 375° preheated oven. Baste the ham with the juices from the pan every 20 minutes or so. After an hour and a half, remove the foil and bake for another 15 minutes. Remove the ham from the oven to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
