Ham (Not SB friendly)

Our Traditional Holiday Ham
(Not SB friendly)

Every since I can remember we have had our family's Holiday Ham for Christmas and Easter. Its very easy to make and tastes wonderful!

1 Bone in Ham (shoulder/butt)
1 bottle of very cheep sweet white wine
1 lb box of brown sugar
1 bottle of cherries in juice
1 can pineapple rings with juice
ground cloves

With a sharp knife make punctures all over the ham. Place in a roasting pan and pour wine, pineapple and the cherry juice all over the ham. sprinkle with rather generous with this as this adds a lot of good flavor! Using the palm of your hand pack brown sugar all over the ham. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for a few hours (20 min's per lb). Take ham out, ladle with pan drippings and repack with brown sugar as needed.

About 20 to 30 min's before the ham is done cooking take the foil off and place pineapple rings all over the ham. Take toothpicks and pierce two cherries on each toothpick and place just under the top pineapple ring to help secure it and place back in oven to bake the addition time. Let the ham rest a about 10 to 15 Min's before carving and serving. ENJOY!!!
