Holiday Ham with Pineapples (Easter or Christmas)
This is the way my Nanny and Mom made our holiday ham. We had it for Easter, Christmas and side by side with turkey on Thanksgiving. This ham is always good, I use oven cooking bags but Mom and Nanny always used foil. It uses brown sugar and ginger ale and pineapple which makes for an excellent gravy! Just thicken the juices with a cornstarch and water slurry, It's a sweet gravy that everyone loves!


  • 1 Ham shank or butt portion (what ever size you like)
  • 2 20 oz cans of pineapple chunks
  • 1 20 oz can of pineapple slices
  • 1 sm jar marachino cherries
  • approx half a 2 liter bottle of ginger ale soda
  • 2/3 cup of brown sugar
  • cooking bag if you are using or just wrap with foil
