Ham in Beer

1 ham - tenderized
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
4 tbl water
1 cup brown sugar
20 whole cloves
10 bay leaves
36 oz beer
Candied cherries
Candied pineapples

Remove all but a thin layer of fat from the ham. Score the top. Place in a roasting pan. Mix mustard, water and sugar to the consistency of prepared mustard. Cover the ham with this mixture. Stick cloves in the ham surface. Fasten the bay leaves to the ham with small skewers or toothpicks broken in half. Pour the beer over the ham and bake uncovered, 30 minutes per pound in an oven pre-heated to 425 degrees. Just before serving, decorate with candied cherries and pineapple slices fastened to the ham with toothpicks. Return to oven to brown for 20 minutes. Use the liquid in the pan as a sauce for the ham.
Allow 1/3lb ham per person as a serving.
