Here's a delicious recipe that Lori used to woo her new beau (who's now her husband).

Ingredients

1 fully cooked bone-in ham, 6-8 lbs.¼ c. light brown sugar, packed
whole cloves¼ c. honey
1 15-oz can pineapple slices in juice¼ c. cola

Preparation

1. Heat oven to 325°F. Place ham, fat side up, on a rack in a foil-lined roasting pan.

2. Score the surface, making diamond shapes ½-inch deep. Insert a clove in the center of every other diamond. Cover the ham loosely in foil.

3. Bake 18-20 minutes per pound, or until meat thermometer registers about 140°F.

4. To make glaze, drain pineapple slices, reserving ¼ cup of juice. Combine the reserved juice, brown sugar, honey and cola in a saucepan.

5. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low; cook until sugar is dissolved, stirring occasionally. Remove foil from ham. Brush ham with glaze.

6. Arrange pineapple slices over the top of the ham. Secure with toothpicks. Bake an additional 30 minutes, still at 325°F, basting every 10 minutes with glaze.

Serves 8 to 10.
