1 country style smoked ham
2 c. water
20 - 30 whole cloves
One (16 ounce) can sliced pineapple rings
1 cup Maraschino cherries, cut into halves
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
Garlic powder
Onion powder
Black pepper

Place ham in roaster. Add 2 cups water, and cover roaster.
Bake in a 325F oven, allowing about 20 minutes per pound for a large ham, about 25 minutes per pound for a smaller (up to 12 pounds) ham or half ham.
When ham is done, remove from oven. Lift off rind. Using a sharp knife, score fat surface crosswise (into intersecting squares) and dot with cloves at each intersection.

To prepare the ham coating, combine brown sugar and flour. Rub this mixture over the scored ham. Sprinkle over lightly with garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper.

Place a pineapple slice on the ham so that one of the cloves will be in the center of the circle. Cover the clove with a Maraschino cherry half. Each cherry half should be placed in the center of a pineapple slice. Continue until ham is covered decoratively with pineapple slices and cherries. Brown, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes in a 400F oven or until ham takes on a beautiful glazed coloring.
