  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

    1. Preheat the oven to 325° F. Adjust a rack to the lowest position in the oven.
    2. Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil and position a roasting rack inside of it. Place the ham on the middle of the roasting rack.
    3. Remove the pineapple slices from the can with a fork, reserving the pineapple juice. Secure the pineapple slices over the surface of the ham with toothpicks. Secure a maraschino cherry into the center of each ring and in the open spaces between rings.
