Ham with Pineapple

Photo by Stephanie Knewasser

From the kitchen of Joan Knewasser

Ham, fully cooked, bone-in or boneless

1-2 cans sliced Pineapple, with juice

Maraschino Cherries

Ground cloves

1 c Brown Sugar

Rinse ham.

Put in a pan.

Score top.

Rub cloves over EACH side.

Use toothpicks to attach pineapple & cherries to ham.

Mix all of leftover pineapple juice with brown sugar.

Pour it over ham.

Periodically baste.

Cooking times depend on size of ham, check label.


  • Instead of basting, I reduce the brown sugar to 3/4 c & put the ham in an oven bag with 1 Tbsp flour. Fresh pineapple is very good. -Stephanie
  • If you use a bone-in ham, save the bone to make bean soup.
