1 14 - 16 pound smoked bone-in Ham

4 cups pineapple juice

fresh ginger, peeled and grated (about a 2 inch piece)

8 cloves fresh garlic, minced

16 whole cloves

1/4 cup Dijon Mustard

1 cup light brown sugar

10 pineapple rings

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme leaves

Garnish: sprigs of fresh thyme

In medium sized saucepan over medium high heat, bring to a boil, pineapple juice, ginger and fresh garlic. Whisk ingredients together, until blended. Set aside when done.

Preheat oven to 350 F. While oven is preheating, trim off rind from ham leaving about a 1/4 - 1/2 layer of fat from the surface of ham. Score ham using a sharp knife cutting into fat in diamond patterns and insert cloves at the cross points.

Place ham in roasting pan and rub ham with dijon mustard covering top. Sprinkle the light brown sugar over dijon mustard and press into the mustard you have rubbed onto ham.

Place Pineapple Rings on top of mustard sugar mixture and secure rings with toothpicks if needed.

Into bottom of roasting pan, pour your pineapple, ginger and garlic mixture.

Place in oven uncovered on middle rack. Bake for about 1 1/2 hours, baste every 15 minutes to get a fantastic "crust".

Remove from oven and place on serving platter. Let rest for about 15 - 20 minutes. Slice into serving pieces along with pineapple slices and enjoy this great winner in Easter Recipes.

Serves 8 - 10.
