Old Fashioned Brown Sugar Glazed Ham with Pineapple

Posted on


  • 1 (7-9 lb.) fully-cooked, bone-in ham
  • 1 ½ cups pineapple juice
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 (20 ounce) can pineapple slices, drained
  • 7-10 maraschino cherries, drained and rinsed


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • In a saucepan, stir together pineapple juice, brown sugar, Dijon mustard and ground cloves. Bring to a boil and then simmer, stirring occasionally, until the mixture becomes slightly syrupy (about 10 minutes). Set aside.
  • Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil. Place ham in the pan. Using a sharp knife, score surface of ham with ¼-in.-deep cuts in a diamond pattern. Arrange pineapple and cherries evenly on ham; secure with wooden toothpicks. Spoon some of the glaze over the ham.
  • Bake at 325° for 1 hour. Shield the ham loosely with aluminum foil after 1 hour to prevent too much browning, and bake for 1 – 1 ½ more hours (or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest portion registers 140°), basting every 30 minutes with additional glaze and pan juices. Let stand 15 minutes and remove toothpicks before slicing.
