My grandmother always made pineapple ham, but I decided that rosy red apple rings look & taste even more festive. You can also make the apple rings from scratch by simmering a pan of water with apple slices, red hots, sugar, & a bit of red food coloring.

How to Make Spiced Apple Holiday Ham

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the ham in a roasting pan cut side down. Score ham with a shallow diamond shaped pattern. Insert cloves into cuts. Cover ham with foil & bake for about 1 1/2 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, drain the liquid from the apple rings into a small saucepan. Whisk in the brown sugar & mustard. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until mixture is thickened & coats the back of a spoon.
  3. Remove foil from ham & brush with the glaze. Secure apple rings & cherries to the ham with toothpicks. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes or until heated through.
