Easter Ham Recipe

This Easter I wanted to make a delicious ham, since I didn't get to for Christmas due to one of my guests being a non-pork eater.  Easter provided me with the perfect opportunity to cook one up.  I always love sweet or smokey ham, and went with sweet this year.

Ham (bone in, the size is up to you, mine was almost 8 lbs)
Brown Sugar
Pineapple (pare off the outside)
Cherry Coca-Cola

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.  Get a deep oven safe pan and line with tinfoil.  Place the ham fat side up.  Cut the pineapple and set aside.  Take the brown sugar and rub generously all over the exposed part of the ham.  Drizzle with honey.  Take the pineapple slices and stick all over the ham to cover.  Attach with toothpicks.  Drizzle over the pineapple with honey.  Pour the Cherry Coke all over the ham until almost filling the pan.  Cover with foil and place in the oven.  Cook for 15 minutes per pound.  Remove the foil when 30 minutes of cooking time remain and continue to cook.  Take out of the oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes before carving.  Enjoy!
