Easy Pineapple Glazed Spiral Ham


Make your own pineapple glaze for your spiral cut ham! I wanted to show how easy it is to turn a spiral cut bone-in ham into something that looks impressive, but isn't a whole lot of work. You see, the ham glaze packet, that comes with a spiral cut cooked ham doesn't do much for me. Have you read the ingredients listings? Yikes! I improvised making my own glaze, using pineapple jam (which I made myself), brown sugar and Dijon mustard. I was surprised at how good this turned out, and with the drippings I actually made a beautiful gravy to pour over the ham slices.

  • SAUCE:
  • 1 spiral cut ham, already cooked
  • 1 cup of pineapple jam
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 to 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Water

Step 1

Preheat oven to 275°F.
Whisk together the glaze ingredients, and generously slather all over the ham.

Cover the ham, loosely, with foil and place into preheated oven set on a roasting rack for about 1 1/2 hours, total.

During the last hour, remove the foil. Brush to spread glaze, evenly, if desired.

If you end up with drippings, which I did, you can make an easy "gravy" for the ham. Here's what you do:

Pour the drippings into a stove top pan.

Add about 1 1/2 cups to 2 cups low sodium chicken broth and bring to a boil.

Stir to combine. To thicken the gravy make the slurry.

For the slurry:
In a bowl, add the cornstarch and whisk in enough cold water to make a thin slurry, without any lumps. If you have lumps, pour the mixture through a fine sieve.

Add a small amount of the slurry, while whisking the gravy on medium-high. Add a very small amount, at a time, until the gravy thickens to your liking.

Taste and season with coarse salt and black pepper, to taste.
