The New York City-based cookbook author Zarela Martinez gave us the recipe for this smoky, Coca-Cola-glazed ham (see "The Wonders of Ham" in SAVEUR's December 2009 issue). To cut slices of fresh pineapple into perfect circles, use a 3" round cookie cutter to trim the outer edges of the slices and a 1" round one to cut out the center.
- 1 (12–15-lb.) whole semiboneless ham
- 8 fresh or canned pineapple slices
- 64 whole cloves
- 2 3⁄4 cups Coca-Cola
- 2 chipotle peppers in adobo, drained and finely chopped
- 1⁄3 cup honey
