Christmas Ham

Christmas Ham
1 uncooked ham
Place the ham in a pot and add equal quantities of beer and 7-up until the meat is almost covered. Boil the ham on a low fire for 1 to 2 hours, turning it over half way.
Remove the ham from the liquid and let it cool down. Remove the skin of the ham by peeling it back, leaving the fat. Score the fat in a criss-cross pattern. Prick the cloves into each corner of the criss-cross pattern.
Mix the brown sugar with the brandy. Pour over the top and add the canned pineapples. Bake the ham in the oven at 180°C until golden brown (approx. 40 minutes). Baste the ham with the glaze every 10 minutes or so while baking.
1 large can sliced pineapples
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup brandy
