This pineapple baked ham is made with a picnic ham, which is not a true ham. The picnic is cut from the front leg or shoulder instead of the back end of the animal. The shoulder is cured like a true ham, so it has ham flavor. A shank ham is easier to carve, but a picnic is more economical.

Pineapple and honey help to flavor the glaze for this tasty smoked shoulder ham.

What You'll Need

  • 1 smoked picnic shoulder, fully cooked, about 5 to 7 pounds
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pineapple slices in juice
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • Maraschino cherries
  • Whole cloves

How to Make It

    1. Remove skin from ham; place on a rack in a baking pan, fat side up.
    2. Cover loosely with aluminum foil; bake at 325 F for about 30 minutes a pound, or to 140 F on ​the meat thermometer.
    3. Drain pineapple, reserving 1/4 cup of juice. Combine the reserved juice, brown sugar, and honey in a saucepan; cook over low heat until sugar is dissolved, stirring occasionally.
    4. Remove foil from ham; score fat in a diamond pattern.
    5. Brush ham with pineapple-honey mixture. Arrange pineapple slices and cherries in a pattern over the top of the ham, securing with toothpicks.
    6. Stud with cloves, if desired, and brush again with the pineapple-honey mixture.
    7. Bake, uncovered, for an additional 30 minutes at 325 F, basting with ​the pineapple-honey mixture.
  • Serves about 10 to 12.
