Pineapple Upside Down Ham

Since her birthday, 15-year-old girl has been talking about pineapple upside down cake, despite the fact that she requested an entirely different cake for her birthday.

For my mother’s birthday, I decided on pineapple upside down ham. I mashed together a million recipes over the years I have used for ham glaze and came up with this recipe:

1 ham (I bought one of those presliced, precooked boneless hams, about 3-5 lbs)
1 can sliced pineapple drained
1 cup brown sugar
1 can Coca-cola
2 tsp dry ground mustard
1 tsp ground ginger

Place pineapple rings in the bottom of a baking pan. Place ham on top. Combine brown sugar, Coca-cola, mustard and ginger in a bowl and whisk until smooth. It makes a very thin glaze. Stud ham with cloves. Pour glaze over ham. Bake for 15 min per pound or by the directions on your ham. Flip onto serving platter OR serve from the baking dish like a heathen. (This is what we generally do.)
