Baked Ham with Pineapple Glaze Recipe




1 (15.25 ounce) can chunk pineapple, drained with juice reserved
1 (4 ounce) jar maraschino cherries, drained
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 can sprite, 7 up or other lemon lime soda

Before baking ham, place pineapple chunks on ham and place cherries with pineapple all around the ham. Heat brown sugar and reserved pineapple juice and soda in a small pan. Mix and cook together for about 10 minutes, until mixture is thicker on medium heat. Pour some of this glaze over the ham about every 15 minutes in the last hour of baking, until all is used. Slice ham and pour the juice and pineapple on the ham with cherries and serve.

Some side dish suggestions:

Sweet Potato Bake
Lemon Pepper Bow Tie Pasta
Roasted Garlic and Potato Soup
Roasted Broccoli and Carrots

That is the same recipe my dad used for ham. Instead of lemon lime soda, sometimes I use ginger ale.

This ham does look tasty! I always like having big hams for the holidays. Even at Christmas is try to have both turkey and ham. I like the recipe for the sweet glaze. Never tried soda, very inspiring-yum!

Claudia this looks so good. I enjoy ham but we never eat it. One of these days I will have to make it. I like how it has soda in it. Mixed with the brown sugar and pineapple this has to be great!
