This recipe comes from an old Canadian insurance company recipe book (???) from the fifties. Everybody loves this recipe, especially those who don't like pineapples.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil the ham for 1/2 hour per lb.
  2. Make sure the water covers at least 3/4 of the height of the ham.
  3. After it is properly boiled, lay the meat in an appropriate roaster.
  4. Cut some grooves along the top of the ham and then pour the sauce mixture on.
  5. Put in the oven for 1/2 hour at 375 F, uncovered.

I made this for my work's Xmas potluck in 2007 and everyone thought it was delicious! A great change from the old pineapples and cherries, to which I am not partial. I even had people ask for some to take home! Two thumbs up!

People will be attracted to the aroma while it's baking. My husband loved this recipe.

I did not have to boil my ham as it came hickory smoked semi-cooked and pre-sliced. I also didn't have ground cloves, so I just stuck about 20-30 whole cloves around the ham inbetween each of the slices. I made the brown sugar and mustard sauce to pour over the top and then cooked it for 2 hours at 350 when it fell off the bone. Great smell and wonderful flavor. Thanks!
