Heat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Remove rind from the whole ham
and score 1/4 inch deep in a diamond pattern. Place in a large roaster with
the fat side up and stud in a decorative manner with the whole cloves, making
sure to use plenty.
Pack the top of the ham with the entire pound of brown sugar so as to coat
the surface as thickly as possible. Some may fall off into the pan but that
can not be helped. Leave it there to sweeten the basting juices needed later.
Place the sugar coated ham into oven for as long as it takes for the sugar
to begin to melt in - about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, blend the pineapple juice and sangria.
HOUR ONE: When the sugar has begun to melt, pour one cup of the wine mixture
over the ham and return the ham to the oven for the one hour.
HOUR TWO: Baste the ham with a second cup of the wine mixture, stirring
it into the pan drippings and basting again. Return the ham to the oven.
HOUR THREE: Repeat the basting routine using the third and final cup of
the wine mixture.
HOUR FOUR: Lower the oven temperature to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) and
baste the ham every 15-20 minutes with the pan drippings for the final hour
of cooking. A meat thermometer should read 160 degrees F (65 degrees C) before
