This is the way I have baked ham for the last 35 years. Always tasty! I have gotten lazy over the years and just chuck a couple of 20 oz cans of chunk pineapple in the bottom along with the Vernors (got to be Vernors!) and the brown sugar and left off the cherries. Still good! I only baked it for 3 hours, turned out fine. Thanks for the recipe!

I couldn't get a hold of MY Grandmother to get her ham recipe (which is VERY similar to this one) so I decided to make YOUR Grandmother's recipe instead. Easy and delicious! Thanks!

Our family has made ham like this for as long as I can remember. I use less brown sugar than called for and baste several times during baking. It tastes as good as it smells while baking. Served with Pineapple Bake from this site. Thanks for posting, Dawn
