Recipe: My Pineapple Ham

I have been making my pineapple ham for ages, but I've never blogged about it as far as I recall.  :)

Was finally up for making a real meal tonight so opted for a family favourite.

Take a half ham... sometimes I use a country ham, or a black forest one, or like tonight a kitchen ham.  Usually whatever is on sale to be frank.  :)

I slice it in thin even slices, sometimes I use my meat slicer (if taking it to a potluck) but more often I just kinda wing it like I did tonight.

Lay them down in your casserole dish.
Cover them with pineapple rings. Slightly overlapping them.
Drizzle some brown sugar overtop...perhaps about 4 tbsp.
Cover your casserole.

USUALLY I then add some apple cider pop... but if I can't find it (not always available) then I'll add some sprite or apple juice (usually 1/2-1/2 mix).   If I'm really stuck I'll add the pineapple juice from the can.

Stick it into a 300 oven and let it cook for an hour or so.

Variations that I occasionally do.

- instead of brown sugar add some raisins or craisins.
- sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the pineapple
- use crushed  or chunked pineapple instead.  My boys don't like this variation though so I do it when they aren't around.

Serve with whatever you are up to.
Goes really well with spaghetti squash lightly seasoned with spices and oil.
Tonight I made crescent rolls and corn which all got devoured.
