BAKED HAM WITH COLA

INGREDIENTS
1 (20 oz.) can sliced pineapple
1 fully cooked smoke ham, whole or half
2-4 c. (depending on size of ham) cola beverage (I use one can per half)

DIRECTIONS
Arrange pineapple on ham; secure with wood picks. Place ham in shallow pan. Pour cola over ham; bake 15 minutes per pound in preheated 350 degree oven, basting with pan juices occasionally. Remove to warm platter and let stand 20 minutes before carving.

Optional: Score ham with a sharp knife in a crisscross pattern about 1 inch apart. Insert whole cloves into the top of the ham instead of using pineapple, pour coke over top and bake as usual.

My mom used to score the top and then hold the pineapple in place with the whole cloves, before dumping a can of cola over top.  Its all good.
