Pineapple-Glazed Ham

By Cheryl Slocum
15 Servings


1 cooked, smoked bone-in ham
1 1/2 tbsp. whole cloves
2 c. Pineapple Juice
1 c. light-brown sugar
1/4 c. Dijon mustard


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. With a sharp knife, remove skin and all but 1/4 inch fat from ham, then score a diamond pattern into fat. Press in a clove at each diamond point. Place ham in a pan and roast for 1 hour.

Meanwhile, make glaze by bringing pineapple juice, brown sugar, and mustard to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Gently boil until thickened and reduced by about half, about 30 minutes.

Brush ham with glaze and roast for 15 minutes; then repeat, for a total roasting time of 30 minutes. Remove ham from oven and let rest for 15 minutes. Discard cloves and carve ham into slices.
