In a saucepan, whisk coke and brown sugar together. Bring to a simmer – will resemble a syrup. Stir in crushed pineapple and simmer for a minute or two. Remove from heat and stir in cinnamon and clove. Set aside. Spoon over ham before placing in the oven and during last 30 minutes of cooking.

Hint: purchase a pre-cooked, pre-sliced ham. Remember that all you are doing is reheating the ham. Before placing in the oven, ooze the sauce between the slices. Just before serving, ooze a bit more over the ham, and serve the remaining sauce to the side
