Brown Sugar and Pineapple Glazed Ham
This easy but delicious ham glaze has been a family holiday favorite for years!
- Serves: 1 person
- 1(6 pound) fully-cooked, bone-in ham
- 1fresh pineapple
- 2(6 ounce) cans pineapple juice
- 1cup brown sugar
Step 1Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Place the ham, cut side down, into a roasting pan.
Step 2Cut the skin off the pineapple with a sharp knife and cut out any brown spots of skin left behind. Slice the pineapple into 1/2-inch slices and cut the cores out of the slices. Pin the slices onto the ham with toothpicks.
Step 3Bake ham in the preheated oven until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the ham reads 140 degrees F (60 degrees C), 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Step 4While the ham is baking, mix the pineapple juice and brown sugar in a microwave-safe ceramic or glass bowl and microwave on medium power until the glaze is boiling and slightly thickened. Work carefully because the glaze will be sticky and very hot.
Step 5Pour about half the glaze evenly over the ham and pineapple about 1 hour before the end of baking; pour the rest over the ham about 30 minutes before the end of baking.
