Pineapple Ham Roast

America, Central: American

This dish is served normally on holidays, and I remember that I was with my family. There are no stories behind it.


1 boneless ham (10-15 pounds)
1 cup water
1 can pineapple slices
1 cup pineapple juice


Stick toothpicks into ham and put pineapples on the toothpicks, then preheat oven to 400. Place in pan for approximately 1 1/2 hours, or until golden brown. Yield 4-12 servings.
