1 7 - 8 pound cooked spiral-sliced ham
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup light-color corn syrup
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon unsweetened pineapple juice
Cherry Sauce (see recipe below)
2 16 ounces cans pitted tart red cherries (water pack)
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
Several drops almond extract
Meanwhile, for Pineapple Glaze, in a small saucepan combine brown sugar, corn syrup, cornstarch, and pineapple juice. Cook and stir over medium heat until bubbly.
Remove ham from oven; remove foil. Brush ham generously with pineapple glaze. Continue baking, uncovered, about 30 minutes more or until ham is well glazed and an instant-read thermometer registers 140 degrees F.
Meanwhile, prepare Cherry Sauce. Cover and keep warm.
Transfer the ham to a serving platter. Serve ham with sauce. Makes 15 servings.
Drain cherries, reserving 1/2 cup liquid. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch. Stir in the reserved cherry liquid, the cherries, and almond extract. Cook and stir over medium heat until sauce is thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Makes about 4 cups.
