Holiday Ham with Pineapple

1 whole bone-in fully cooked ham (12-14 lbs), spiral-cut or thinly sliced
2 cans (6 oz. each), pineapple juice
1 (20 oz.) can crushed pineapple, undrained
1 and 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
20-30 whole cloves

Place ham in a roasting pan. Slowly pour pineapple juice over ham so it runs between slices. Spoon pineapple over ham. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cloves. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Discard cloves. Cover and bake ham at 325 degrees for 1 and 1/2 to 2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 140 degrees, basting every 20 minutes. 20-28 servings. If a spiral sliced ham isn't available, ask your butcher to cut a fully cooked ham into 1/8 inch thick slices, and tie it securely. This is a delicious ham recipe!
