I needed something for my ham tonight. This is zesty sweet & oh so good! And it really doesn't get any easier!! Developed for RSC 10. This is suitable for a 5-7lb ham.
- 1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks or 1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple, undrained
- 1⁄2 cup maple syrup
- 1⁄4 cup Dijon mustard
- 1 jalapeno, minced
- 1 cup golden raisin
- Combine all ingredients & mix well.
- Pour over your ham of choice & bake as directed, basting occasionally.
This made the house smell good enough to eat! I helped make this and invited my Grandmom over for dinner. She liked it too! You did a good job Elmotoo!
This smelled so good cooking! I reduced the recipe to make 1 cup of glaze and then poured it over thick sliced ham steaks. I then baked them covered with foil. I used maple flavored syrup. I am sure the maple flavor would be stronger with pure maple syrup and would enhance this dish. I also seeded the jalapeno. That said, I really enjoyed this. It wasn't overly sweet or spicy, yet really added to the smokey flavor of the ham. This is one I will use again on a whole ham. If you desire more of a kick leave the seeds of the jalapeno in. I will next time. thank you for your RSC #10 entry!
We all loved this recipe! The glaze was more like a nice chutney which was an added bonus! The flavor profile was perfect for ham and I will make this again! Good Luck Chef!!!!
