Make the glaze. See recipe and ingredients above.
Place the ham on double sheet of heavy duty foil, place in a large roaster, and pour and brush about half the glaze over the ham. Fold foil over ham and seal well by folding over several times.
Check your label on the ham for approximate "cooking/heating" time and oven temperature. ( I remember my temp as 325 and I think it took 2 or 3 hours)
Remove roaster from oven about 45 minutes before the ham is completely baked, open and fold back foil. Decorate with pineapple and cherries. Spoon the rest of the glaze over the fruit and return to oven to warm and brown the fruit. Serve.

This is the way we like our ham, especially my middle child. He remembers Grandma Welch baking hers like this.

By the way, this ham was the best ham I have ever had. Moist and delicious, and literally falling off the bone tender. So Yummy. It was a Cook's whole ham.

Cook's are the very best hams. My husband baked a whole one one was huge. and it looked beautiful. Don't know if I could find the pic but I'm sure we took one. It was so delicious. He really can cook meat better than me.
