{Repost} Dijon Pineapple Glazed Ham Recipe

Bone-in Ham with Dijon Pineapple Glaze
I've shared this recipe before as it is a family favorite and my go-to recipe for glazed ham.  But, with Easter right around the corner (tomorrow!!!) I wanted to make it available again.  I still have to run out to the store and buy a ham myself.  Hopefully, there are still some left!
Dijon-Pineapple Glaze
(adapted from Kraft Foods recipe)

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup maple syrup or honey (I've also used the glaze packet included with the ham for the syrup)

1/4 cup Dijon mustard

1 can crushed pineapple, with juice (I chop up frozen pineapple or canned pineapple chunks in my Vitamix)

1 tablespoon corn starch

whole cloves

Maraschino cherries, halved (optional)

 Heat oven to temperature listed in cooking directions included with the ham.  Mix syrup, sugar and mustard until blended.  Spread a portion of the glaze over the ham.  Add cloves and cherries to the top of the ham.  Bake ham according to directions.

Before the ham is done cooking, combine remaining glaze with corn starch and crushed pineapple in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.  Cook and stir over medium-low heat for 5 minutes or until thickened.  Serve sauce alongside ham.

  1. Sounds like a yummy recipe!

    I hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter!

  2. Surely our scientists know more about chemistry that nature does, so surely
    they should be able to come up with some far better for our skin than any of
    these natural oils and butters you read about. They come in a variety of distinct colors and possess the
    ability to dry 40% faster than other similar face cloths. Indulging in a warm bubble bath, listening to music and playing your favourite sport are also good ways of beating stress.
