  1. Remove skin from ham; score the surface, making diamond shapes 1/2 in. deep. Insert a clove in every other diamond; set remaining cloves aside. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Combine the onion, garlic, oregano, basil and pepper; pat onto ham. Combine 1/2 cup brown sugar and parsley; sprinkle over top of ham. Pour ginger ale around ham. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 2 hours, basting often. Remove ham from pan; set aside. Drain pan juices, reserving 3 tablespoons. For glaze, combine honey, remaining brown sugar and reserved pan juices in a small bowl. Increase oven temperature to 400°. Return ham to pan. Insert remaining cloves into ham. Spoon half of the glaze over ham. Bake for 20 minutes. Place pineapple on ham; drizzle with remaining glaze. Bake 30 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 140°. Let stand for 15 minutes before carving. Yield: 30 servings.
