2 medium pineapples, peeled lengthwise, cored, and cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
3 cups sugar
2 cups water
1/4 cup country-style mustard
1 smoked, bone-in ham (10 pounds)
40 whole cloves
1 cup dry white wine
Preheat the oven at 350 degrees.
Place the pineapples, sugar, and water in a large saucepan under high heat. Bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 1 hour or until the pineapples are translucent and the liquid is reduced and thick. Transfer pineapple glaze to a bowl and stir in the mustard.
Score the ham with a sharp knife and make 1 1/2 inch diamonds. Place a clove at the center of each diamond. Transfer the ham to a roasting pan and pour wine on it. Glaze the ham with half of the pineapple glaze. Cover the roasting pan in foil and bake it for 1 hour. Remove the ham.
Glaze the ham with the remaining pineapple glaze. Bake uncovered for 30-45 minutes or until it is brown. Baste occasionally. Once it is cooked. Transfer the ham to a cutting board. Let it cool for 30 minutes before carving. Serve with pan drippings and cooked pineapple.
