Yummy baked ham

Blondie's BF is on a very limited diet and has to cook everything himself so he doesn't accidentally ingest something that would make him extremely ill- he's dairy free, gluten free, a few other things. He's also very bored with his repertoire, so Miss Picky told him about my ham and it has nothing he can't eat in it. (It's one of her fave things I make.) This is an exact copy of the recipe I sent him- so yes, I really am like this in real life, I don't put on airs especially for y'all.

Yummy Baked Ham

1 Ham (already cooked)
1 can pineapple slices, save juice
Brown sugar- ¼ to ½ cup
Squirt of mustard
Maraschino cherries

Bake ham for 15 min lb @ 325 degrees

30 minutes before it’s done, take it out and score* (if it is the fatty/skin on kind cut that off)

*score means cut crisscrosses not too deep all the way across top and sides of ham

Lay pineapple slices all over it. Put a cherry in the middle of each slice- if they fall off- oops, it happens, shove some more on- the more the merrier. ;-)

Mix the pineapple juice with the brown sugar (this is to taste I could be WAY off on amts- just do a handful, put in a squirt of mustard- I HATE yellow and use Gulden’s spicy brown- if you can’t eat that either dried mustard or some cider vinegar or something to give it a little tang)

Put back in the oven for 15 minutes, baste then put back in til time is up.

Let it set 10 or 15 minutes to distribute juices, then gobble it up.

Tastes so good you wanna slap someone’s mama- DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES SLAP CASEY’S MAMA unless you want to buy her the Silver Jeep Wrangler Rubicon or you will never ever ever be forgiven.

  6. I want to try this.... just a quick q though, you say to put it in the over for 15 mins then 30 mins before it is done...

    Did you mean 45 mins?

    Am i missing something?

    either way, I can't wait to try it!

  7. Thank you for stopping over at my blog and for nominating me!!!!! Your comment was funny and cute! I've got to go back to your THREE BLOGS (holy moly!) and become your follower if I haven't already.

    But before I go, do you really like ham? If so, I have a variation on the recipe that you have posted. I created this nice glaze and it doesn't take very long either. You can use fresh or canned fruit. Line the pan with crushed pineapple. Put the ham in the middle. Do the traditional diagonal cuts with cloves in the places they cuts meet. Then boil down canned apricots with the juice until it is a little thick. Sprinkle the ham with brown sugar. Pour the apricot glaze mixture on. Bake 350 for 30 minutes. Remove from over, spoon pineapple on top of ham with glaze. Bake 350 for 30 mins. Glaze again. Bake 210 for 30 mins. Glaze. Bake 210 for 30 minutes. If your ham is small, it will be done now. If it is larger, keep repeating bake 210 and glaze until it is tender. My daughter eats this like it was ice cream :o)

    Hope you have a Fabulous Friday♥

    The ham is cooked for 15 minutes per pound and depending how big it is is how long it cooks for.
    The glaze is added for the last 30 minutes so if it is a 10 pound ham it would take 150 minutes or 2 1/2 hours and for the last half hour it cooks uncovered with the glaze.

    That looks really, really good thanks for sharing. I will make it when mama comes next time for a special treat for her, and yes I will save it til then because she loves apricots and can't cook in her place and I just know she will love it.
