Cooking Procedures :

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.  Prepare a roasting pan with rack or baking tray.
  2. In a stockpot, place ham, pineapple juice and 1 cup brown sugar. Make sure ham is submerged in the juice. Add more juice (or water) to cover, if necessary.

  6. Prepare Caramelized Pineapple: In a skillet brown pineapple in about 1 tbsp. butter over medium heat, turning occasionally, until caramelized. Set aside.
  7. Roast ham, uncovered, about 20 minutes or until browned. Transfer to cutting board and tent with foil; let stand for 15 minutes before carving. Serve with warm Caramelized Pineapple.
