"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway
This recipe for Pineapple and Cherry Glazed Ham, by Gail Burgess, is from Our Family Cookbook,
one of the cookbooks created at FamilyCookbookProject.com. We help
families or individuals create heirloom cookbook treasures.
1 can sliced pineapple 1 jar maraschino cherries 1 jar ham glaze toothpicks-natural colored 1 large ham
Preheat oven to 300º. Take the ham and place it in a sturdy roasting pan. Open the can of pineapples and pour the juice over the ham. Do the same with the cherries. Place pineapples and cherries onto the ham by pinning the cherries in the center of the pineapples with toothpicks. Use natural colored toothpicks or the color will bleed into the ham when cooked. Using a brush or spoon, take the ham glaze and generously cover the ham, pineapples and cherries. Cook ham according to directions. Baste frequently to keep pineapples and cherries from burning.
Depends on size of the ham
Erica's personal request. She made a glazed ham for the first time for Ronald's 50th Birthday party and it came out great!
