  1. Fold each slice of ham in half and wrap it around the center of a pineapple spear.

Drizzle 1 tablespoon of the vinegar over the pineapple spears and cook until the vinegar bubbles up and thickens slightly, about 1 minute.
  3. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil while repeating the cooking instructions with the remaining ingredients. Serve with the celery stalks, if desired.
