Pineapple Crusted Ham

The pineapple topping on this ham makes it stand out! This is a perfect main dish for the holidays.

1 (20-ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup applesauce
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 (5- to 6-pound) fully cooked semi-boneless cured ham

Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil then coat with nonstick cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients except ham; mix well. Place ham in roasting pan. Pat pineapple mixture over ham, coating completely.

Bake 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours, or until heated through and coating is crisp and brown, spooning pineapple mixture over ham every 20 minutes. Slice and serve.
