This is a classic 50’s housewife Easter dish. This is how my mom, Cherri, always made our Easter Ham. This recipe is easy with a beautiful presentation and wonderful flavor.
Since my mom has passed, we have made ham without any fuss/muss. This year, I asked my father to help me make ham the way my mom used to make it. It was pretty close to what I thought it was and I am so thankful that my Dad was around to remind me of the little details that I had forgotten (like how to arrange the cherri inside the pineapple).
My friend Michele had Easter dinner with us, and she couldn’t believe that the ham tasted just like the one her mom used to make. My guess? Our moms got the recipe from the same book or magazine. During the 50’s, it seems like there were a few classic ‘American’ recipes that almost all the housewives used. This was likely one of them.
So, if you’re looking for a beautiful and flavorful ham, try this recipe. It doesn’t dissapoint!
