This pineapple ham recipe by Simply Mamá Cooks on YouTube looks beautiful and perfect for the holidays. It8217;s a sweet honey glazed ham with touches of Hawaiian. The ham looks super juicy and tender, and it8217;s important to properly cook it with a great recipe. I think the sweetness and tang from all of the ingredients would balance out. The final results after it8217;s finished baking and cut looks so good to make for the holidays.
- 8 to 10 lbs Fully Cooked Ham ( I used bone-in ham)
- 2 8211; 20 oz cans of Pineapple slices
- 12 oz of pineapple juice (I used juice from cans)
- 8 oz to 10 oz jar of Maraschino cherries
- 2 oz (1/4 cup) of juice from cherries
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice)
- 1 packed cup light brown sugar (dark sugar works too)
- 4 oz (1/2 cup) honey
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground cloves
- toothpicks for pineapple slices and cherries
- 1/2 cup of honey
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- (add to the exterior of ham, before adding pineapples and cherries)
First, make the sauce for the ham by adding them into a pot. Keep the heat on low and mix everything together. Make sure that the brown sugar is dissolved, and set aside. Score the ham8217;s exterior with a knife about half an inch into the ham horizontally and create a checkered pattern. Slightly open up the slits on the ham so that the juices cook between them.
Next, add the pineapple slices to the ham with cherries in the center with a toothpick. Pour the glaze over the ham and cover it with a lid or aluminum foil. For a bone-in fully cooked ham, bake at 325F for 15 to 20 minutes per pound. Baste the ham every 20 to 30 minutes. Then, for the last 30 minutes of cook time, remove the lid and baste twice to get the color on the ham.
