Glazed Pineapple Ham
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 2-1/4 hours + standing
- 1 fully cooked bone-in ham (7 to 9 pounds)
- Whole cloves
- 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
- 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°.
- 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 over medium-high heat; cook and stir 1-2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Reserve 2 cups for sauce; keep warm.
- 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.
- Bake ham, uncovered, 10-15 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 140°. Serve with reserved sauce.

Delicious!!! Didn't change the type of brown sugar though....didn't realize until I had already made it. But it tasted great!!

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.
