My mom always made her ham with pineapple juice, mustard, and brown sugar glaze and I make mine with cherry 7up so knew this would be very good. I used a semi-boneless ham and laid canned pineapple slices with a maraschino cherry tucked in with toothpicks. Also used a can of cherry coke and basted often. Liked the molasses flavor in the glaze and usually I am not a huge fan. Our ham was juicy and very delicious! Thank you Dee for sharing this great recipe. Made and reviewed for the Think Pink 2019 event.
