In small saucepan over medium heat; cook pineapple juice 25 minutes while stirring frequently. Juice should reduce by half.

Add honey, sugar and mustard.

Cook 5-8 minutes while constantly stirring. Once glaze has thickened to a syrup consistency, remove from heat and set aside until ham is ready to be glazed.


This ham recipe is great because the glaze is really easy to prepare. We keep it simple with pineapple juice, honey and mustard for a sweet tangy sauce. I add just a touch of sugar to achieve that sticky syrup consistency. But, you can definitely omit the sugar if you prefer.

I tried this recipe today And the ham came out awesome! Everyone had seconds and then took some home :) I'm very pleased. Thank you so much!

You might also be thinking, “what’s up with all the sugar?”. The honey, sugar and pineapple in this recipe help to act as a foil to the salty ham . Furthermore, it also aids in the beautiful caramelization process on the ham’s surface that makes it even more drool-worthy!
