Pineapple Glazed Ham
Pineapple honey glazed ham is great for the Holidays or any time of year. I often serve the dish up with scalloped potatoes but mashed or rice words too. It is a great alternative to turkey, as I am not a turkey lover. If you are, it can be an additional dish too.
I use cloves in the ham, but this is totally optional. It just adds a really nice touch. You can also adjust the glaze according to your liking.Video:
