MethodCaramelized Pineapple: In skillet brown pineapple in about 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter over medium heat, turning occasionally, until caramelized. Set aside.
Place ham, fat side up, on rack in roasting pan; pour in 2 cups (500 mL) water. Cover pan tightly with foil; roast in 325°F (160°C) oven for 2 hours, adding more water if necessary to maintain level. Pour off drippings, reserving 1/4 cup (50 mL).
If ham has skin, peel off. Trim fat layer to 1/4-inch (5 mm) thickness. Diagonally score fat to form diamond pattern. Stud centre of each diamond with clove.
