My family loved the glaze on top of ham steaks. I took leftovers to work and when I heated my leftovers up, it smelled so wonderful my co-workers gathered around to see what I was eating. So far, this is the best glaze I have found for ham. The pineapple juice makes it sweet, while the orange juice concentrate saves it from going overboard in the sweetness department. It's very easy and quick to cook up too. You can alter the recipe to cover just a few ham steaks.

This is super! I marinated 2 cut-up chickens in this stuff for about 3 hours, and then chucked the whole thing in the oven for another hour and a half. The sugars in the juices (not to mention the brown sugar itself) totally caramelized the chicken, and it was both juicy and crispy at the same time. I may never use this on ham, but I've got great plans for a brisket this weekend!
