Apricot Pineapple Ham

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Bake: 1 hour 40 min.


10-14 servings

Tired of mixing up messy glazes to put on ham, I tried this simple recipe a few years ago. Young and old alike complimented me on the lovely, sweet and juicy ham - and I've prepared it this way ever since. -Cathy Neve, Yakima, Washington


  • 1/2 fully cooked bone-in ham (5 to 7 pounds)
  • 1 can (6 ounces) pineapple juice
  • 1 jar (10 ounces) pineapple preserves
  • 1 jar (10 ounces) apricot preserves
  • 2 cans (8 ounces each) sliced pineapple, drained
  • 1 jar (6 ounces) maraschino cherries with stems


  1. Place ham on a rack in a roasting pan. Score the surface, making diamond shapes 1/2 in. deep. Pour pineapple juice over ham. Cover and bake at 325° for 1-1/4 hours.
  2. Uncover; brush ham with preserves. Arrange pineapple slices and cherries on ham, securing with wooden toothpicks. Bake, uncovered, 25-30 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 140° and then ham is heated through. Discard toothpicks.

    I'm making this for the second time. I've always used pineapple on baked ham, but the addition of apricot makes the ham even tastier. The aroma of the ham cooking is mouth-watering!

    Very easy recipe. Looked so nice my dad took a picture of the ham before we ate it. Was delicious and there were very little left overs. This recipe was a hit! I will use it every time I make a ham going forward.
