Pineapple Glazed Ham

As a child, our family would have a special type of ham every Christmas. Now with a family of my own and in a different country, I have tried over the years to recreate the ham that I had as a child.  This recipe is the closest approximation to that special ham. I recently brought this to a salu-salo and it was a hit.

The leftover ham slices are great when sprinkled with sugar and pan fried. The ham is great on bread such as pan-de-sal (Filipino bread roll).
