Spiced Rubbed Pineapple Ham



Ingredients:
1 pineapple, sliced
1 bone-in ham (about 6 lbs)

dry rub:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon cayanne

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Whisk together the dry rub ingredients in a small bowl. Rub it on all sides of the ham. Attach the pineapple slices with toothpicks. Place on a roasting pan (preferably one with a rack) and roast until cooked through and hot, about 40 minutes.

My thoughts:
I love my pineapple slicer! It is like magic. It made the most perfect slices of pineapple to pin onto my giant ham. A giant ham that was both delious and enough meat to ensure that we ate ham for at least one meal each day for an entire week. Luckily, it was very, very good. Not too sweet and perfectly spiced.
