Jo Anne's Story

This recipe for our Holiday Ham is made every year at either Thanksgiving or Christmas. The original recipe is my mom's, but this recipe here has a little twists and tweaks that I've made. It's sooooo delicious!
The photo is not mine, but will soon be replaced with one of my own.

Ingredients

HAM:
1 can(s)
ham (5 lb.) or a smoked ham
whole cloves
5 Tbsp
yellow mustard
1 c
brown sugar
1 can(s)
pineapple rings
toothpicks
maraschino cherries
GLAZE:
1 c
guava jelly
2 Tbsp
dark brown sugar
1 Tbsp
dijon mustard
1/4 c
white wine
1/2 c
pineapple juice
1/4 c
ketchup
1/4 tsp
ground cloves
SAUCE:
1 c
ham glaze that was set aside
1 can(s)
cherry pie filling, (21 oz.)
1/2 c
raisins (opt.)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place the ham and the drippings in a deep dish roasting pan.
2
Score the top of the ham, diagonal cuts about 1/4 inch deep and an inch apart. In each diagonal point (like a grid), push a whole clove in each point of the ham. Poke whole cloves around the sides of the ham.
3
Spread the yellow mustard onto the top of the ham and the cloves.
4
Pack the brown sugar on the top of the ham, making a slight mound.
5
Arrange the pineapple rings on top of the brown sugar, over lapping them for a nice arrangement. Pour the pineapple juice into the roasting pan. Toothpick a maraschino cherry into the center of each pineapple ring to hold it there during the baking process.
6
Bake the ham at 275 degrees for 2 hours, tenting the ham with foil during the last 30 minutes of baking.
7
GLAZE:
8
Combine all the ingredients and cook over medium-low heat till well incorporated.
9
Set aside a cup of the cooked glaze mixture for the sauce.
10
Pour the remaining glaze over the ham during the last 1/2 an hour of baking.
11
SAUCE:
12
Combine the juices in the roasting pan with the ham glaze, cherry pie filling and raisins (opt.), in a saucepan and warm it over low heat. Remove from heat.
13
Slice the ham, use the pineapple rings and arrange it on a serving platter. Pour the hot sauce over the ham slices or serve it on the side.
