At long last, here are step-by-step instructions for making a classic and colorful pineapple-and- maraschino-cherry-festooned party ham, lusciously glazed with brown sugar and pineapple juice.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 (15.25 ounce) can sliced pineapple, drained with juice reserved
- 1 (4 ounce) jar maraschino cherries, drained
- 1 cup brown sugar
Before baking ham, place pineapple slices on ham with toothpicks and place cherries in center of pineapple.
In a medium microwave safe bowl combine brown sugar and reserved pineapple juice. Mix together and microwave for about 5 minutes, until mixture is thick. Pour some of this glaze over the ham about every 15 minutes in the last hour of baking, until all is used.
