Sweet Baked Ham Supreme




  • 1 (5 to 6 pound) ham
  • Whole cloves
  • Meat tenderizer
  • Accent
  • Season-All
  • Brown sugar
  • 2 cans sliced pineapple, juice reserved
  • Maraschino cherries, juice reserved


  • 1 can Coca-Cola
  • 1 cup Madeira wine
  • Juice from 2 cans of pineapple
  • Juice from bottle of maraschino cherries
  • 1 can undiluted frozen orange juice


  1. Ham: Cut off the fat and make thin slices across the meat to form diamonds, about 1 1/2 inches apart. Embed meat with whole cloves, about 1 inch apart, then liberally sprinkle the meat with tenderizer, Accent and Season-All. Rub liberally with brown sugar and press against the meat so that liquids soak through the sugar. Add more brown sugar and continue to press it against the meat until no more liquids soak through.
  2. Using 2 cans of sliced pineapple, cut the pineapple into 1-inch chunks and place them on the ham with wooden picks, about 2 inches apart. Between the pineapple, place maraschino cherries with wooden picks. Put the ham in a large baking pan. In the bottom of the pan pour the Baste.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F for at least 3 hours. After the first hour, baste frequently.
  4. Thicken gravy with a paste made by combining cornstarch with water.
