Ingredients for Pineapple Honey Glazed Ham:

  • 9 pounds of ham
  • 2 cans of sliced pineapples, reserve the juice
  • 1 jar of maraschino cherries, reserve the juice
  • 2 tbsp of Dijon mustard
  • ½ cup of honey
  • 1½ cups of brown sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • ½ tsp of cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp of ground ginger
  • 4 tbsp of butter
  • Whole cloves

How to Make Pineapple Honey Glazed Ham:

Step 1

Line a baking dish with aluminum foil, then place the ham, break the pineapple slices apart in half, and place them inside each slice of ham. Push the cherries inside the slices as well, then stick cloves all around the slices of the ham, and secure the slices with toothpicks to help keep the pineapples and cherries from falling out. If the back of the ham is unsliced, score it nicely as shown in the video, then place the whole pineapple slices on top of the ham, and put a cherry at the center.


Step 2

Stick a toothpick to hold them in place, and repeat the same steps all over the ham. Pour in some of the reserved pineapple juice to the bottom of the ham, then cover the ham with aluminum foil, and put it inside a preheated oven. Allow the ham to bake for about 1.5 to 2 hours at 325°F, then while waiting prepare the glaze. In a saucepan, add the salted butter, honey, brown sugar, ¼ cup each of the pineapple and cherry juice, cinnamon, ginger, Dijon mustard, nutmeg, and salt.

Step 3

Place the saucepan on a stove over medium to medium-high heat, then allow the syrup to cook until melted while stirring occasionally. Check the ham, then baste it in its juices making sure to get into each slice, then put it back in the oven, and allow it to bake uncovered at 400°F for about 10 more minutes. After a few minutes, glaze the ham with the prepared glaze, then put it back in the oven, and let it cook for 25 more minutes making sure to baste the ham every 5 minutes.
