Glazed Pineapple Ham Recipe

This was the first time that I've ever done our holiday ham, and I was so happy with how crispy and juicy it turned out. It's going to be a new tradition. —Chrissy Clark, Boise, Idaho
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 2-1/4 hours + standing YIELD:20 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 fully cooked bone-in ham (7 to 9 pounds)
  • Whole cloves
  • GLAZE/SAUCE:
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 2-1/2 cups packed dark brown sugar, divided
  • 1 can (20 ounces) unsweetened crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 325°. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Using a sharp knife, score surface of ham with 1/4-in.-deep cuts in a diamond pattern; insert a clove in each diamond. Cover and bake 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until a thermometer reaches 130°.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, dissolve cornstarch in water; stir in 2 cups dark brown sugar, pineapple, lemon juice, mustard and salt. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 1-2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Reserve 2 cups for sauce; keep warm.
  • 3. Remove ham from oven. Increase oven setting to 425°. Pour remaining pineapple mixture over ham. In a small bowl, mix light brown sugar and remaining dark brown sugar; spread over ham.
  • 4. Bake ham, uncovered, 10-15 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 140°. Serve with reserved sauce. Yield: 20 servings.

"Really liked the sauce. Didn't have light and dark brown sugar, so just used the dark I had. Thot it sounded like a lot of sugar, so I didn't do the sugar sprinkling at the end. It probably would have put a lovely crust on the ham, but I didn't miss it."

"We loved this ham. It was moist and tasty. I forgot to use the cloves and it was still really good. This will probably be our go-to ham recipe."
