I once was treated to a baked ham with instead of pineapple slices garnishing the top, tart cherries attached with cloves on each of the diamond that were cut into the surface of the ham; and either basted with the cherry juice or marinated in it. Really good. Years ago. So now I'm trying to devise the recipe, or if anyone knows one, I'd love to know. Mike
