Pineapple Ham Glaze
another old recipe from my Betty Crocker’s Cookbook (page 248)
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 Tbs. cornstarch
- 1/4 tsp salt (I omit)
- 1 small can (8-ounces) crushed pineapple with syrup
- 2 Tbs. lemon juice
- 1 Tbs. prepared yellow mustard
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and comes to a boil. Boil gently and stir 1 minute until thickened. Serve alongside baked ham.
Doubled Recipe Notes:
- Sometimes it is hard to find the small cans of crushed pineapple or I want to double the recipe. The large cans of crushed pineapple come in 20-ounce size. When using the large can, I double all of the other ingredients even though the smaller can doubled equals just 16-ounces. If you think it is a little thinner than you like, simmer the sauce a few minutes more to reduce. I don’t find this is necessary.
- I have always made and served this as a sauce to spoon on ham slices. Though I have not tried it as a glaze, it can be used as a glaze. To use as a glaze, remove the ham from the oven 30 minutes before it is done. If desired, score the fat surface of the ham lightly, cutting uniform diamond shapes. Spoon or brush on the glaze and continue baking 30 minutes longer.

Can I make this the day before?? I can’t wait!!
Yes, you can make the ham glaze the day before. But, since it takes just a few minutes to cook, sometimes I will have all of the ingredients in the pot and when ready, I will heat and cook until thickened.
Thank you for stopping by and leaving your comment!

Happy Easter! Your ham & glaze sound delish! I have two recipes I love. We are going to break tradition and have kolbasi….not sure of the spelling there. We did make pizzelles'. Yum. My gluten-free ones turned out great…nice and thin and crisp.
Your grandchildren look so delightful, you must have wonderful times together. I hope you have a very special Easter.
Lorraine, this glaze sounds lovely! Happy Easter!

The name itself sounds appetizing – Pineapple glaze. And it looks great too. Now if only someone would make it for me 🙂

I love pineapple with ham but I've never tried making it like this. Sounds delicious!
Talking of which, I remember now your recipe for pineapple spoon bread… umm that was so yummy!
Perfect for Easter, Lorraine. We are actually going out for brunch this year, I think-kids are all gone- xo Diana
I really like mustard and pineapple together, this looks like a great sauce.Thanks for sharing.
Wishing you and your dear family a most blessed Easter.
Oh yum…might give this a whirl! Happy Easter to you and yours!
This looks really yummy! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
I've never made a ham myself, but I think this would be the recipe i would make! I'm a big fan of sweet pineapple with the salty ham. What a lovely idea for Easter dinner!
