Pineapple Honey Glazed Ham

Pineapple Honey Glazed Ham


I haven't tried baking a home-made ham. It takes a lot of preparation so I'm not up to it yet. I usually have the store bought glazed ham, the purefoods fiesta ham in particular. It's already tasty and nice flavored by itself, but I do want it coated with a richer glaze. So I always rely on with this favorite homemade glaze I've tried for quite a few years now.


Some store-bought hams comes with a small pouch of pineapple glaze. But that wouldn't be enough for the kind of glaze  I want. I want the sweet glaze to compliment with the salty flavor of the ham.  So here's what I do..

  • In a heated pan, mix together a cup of crushed pineapple, 1/2 to 1 cup of pineapple juice, 1/3 cup honey ,  2 tbsp brown sugar, one clove garlic (finely chopped), 1 tsp dijon mustard and a pack of pineapple glaze from the ham package (if any). Cook and let the mixture boil. Set aside.
  • Place the ham in a baking pan, and add some sliced apples around the ham.
  • Pour about half of the glaze mixture over the ham.
  • cover the pan with aluminum foil.
  • Bake the ham at 175°C (oven must be preheated before baking) for about 30 minutes.
  • Remove the foil, put the remaining glaze into the ham, leave the pan uncovered and bake for another 30 minutes or until you achieved your desired golden glaze.
  • If preferred, you can put the juice from the ham drippings (from baking) and the baked apples in a blender for a smoother gravy. Or just leave it as is and serve.
  • To serve, garnish the ham with cherries and fresh pineapple, apples, peaches or any fruit you want.
     Happy holidays everyone!

No, you don't really need to use an oven if you don't feel up using it. I just wanted it heated whole.
