Following the recipe I have included pictures of a couple of the old graves at Rose Hill. I am not related to these people, but have always found them to be interesting.

You need a good size ham, either butt or shank portion. Aunt Peggy prefers shank, I prefer butt, either is fine.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Remove all wrapping and wash ham, pat dry.
Double wrap the ham in heavy duty aluminum foil.
Place in large roasting pan.
Cook at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes.
Turn down heat to 200 degrees.
Cook overnight or at least six hours, depending on size of ham.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes or so.
Unwrap and if desired, score the skin with a knife and brush with a glaze made of brown sugar and orange juice.
At this point you can place pineapple rings on it and put a cherry in the center of each.
Place back in the oven and brown the glaze, I would suggest the temperature be around 325 degrees for this. Don't leave it in too long, you want it to remain juicy.
Or, you can just slice it up as it is straight from the oven and eat it, which is my preferred method.
