Favorite Baked Ham with Pineapple Glaze

Both my Father and Father-in-Law are ham nuts. They went really crazy over my ham and glaze. I'm always getting requests for the recipe, so I might as well share it here.  It is so simple, inexpensive and sure to please.

1/2 smoked ham
1 medium can crushed pineapple juice (with juice)
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 tsp. cloves, powdered form
2 Tbsp. corn starch
1/2 cup brown sugar

Pre-heat over to 350 degrees. Slice any remaining skin off the ham and cut criss-cross lines on the top. Place it in a roasting pan and put in oven; bake for 1-1/2 hours. Add remain contents in a sauce pan and heat on stove, stirring constantly until glaze it thick. Spread glaze evenly over ham, back for another 30 minutes.
