Holiday Ham


The holidays aren’t complete with out a deliciously cooked holiday ham. Did you know that making a holiday ham is as easy as unwrapping that gift that you had desired so much as a young child? Well, it is!

You will need the following ingredients:


1 Whole Ham

1 Sliced Pineapple (canned or fresh), save juices

1 cup brown sugar

1 Cup of Cherries

½ TSP of Salt

½ Cup of Cloves

1 can of Ginger Ale

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F and score the ham with ¼ inch cuts in a diamond pattern. This will allow the ham to soak up the juices from the pineapple
  2. Place the ham onto a roasting tray and arrange cloves into the center of each score around the ham.
  3. Drain juice from pineapple slices and mix it with brown sugar, salt, and can of ginger ale. Coat the ham with this marinade. Place cherries at the center of each pineapple slice and secure slices around the ham with toothpicks.
  4.  Bake in the over 4 to 5 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F. Make sure the meat thermometer is not touching the bone as it will change the temperature. Throughout the cooking process, be sure to squeeze juices onto ham frequently.

Be sure to pick up your holiday ham at The Meat House along with various side dishes and other mouth-watering food to enhance your holiday meal!
