Baked Ham with Brown Sugar-Pineapple Glaze

This Thanksgiving, switch out your turkey for a classic baked ham.

“My mom always made ham for Thanksgiving because my dad loved it. My own kids love ham more than turkey, so ham is always a part of our holiday meal. My mom would take the time to put the pineapple, cherries and cloves on the ham to make it look so festive. I love this memory, and I try to carry on the same tradition.” Tammy Stafford
