Pineapple Glaze for Baked Ham

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 10 mins

Posted at the request of my sister. Glazing a ham while cooking is wonderful but the first person to the platter usually makes off the the glazed ends and the rest of the people get a "glazed rim". The solution in our house is to make lots of glaze and pour it over each slice!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all ingredients in a small saucepan including the juice/syrup from the pineapple.
  2. Turn heat on to medium and stir constantly to prevent burning.
  3. Continue to heat until mixture thickens and comes to a boil.
  4. Allow mixture to boil for approximately 1 minute.
  5. If mixture refuses to thicken, add more cornstarch- a little at a time.
  6. (Be sure to mix your cornstarch with a little cold water in a cup to make a smooth liquidified mixture before adding it to the hot sauce.) Pour finished sauce into a serving bowl, complete with a ladle, and let your guests pour it over baked sliced ham.

Great recipe! My husband requested pineapple glaze and I had never made it before, so I came to find one. I served this with our Thanksgiving ham (spiral cut) and it was a hit. Plus, it was very quick and easy. I didn't put this on the ham directly, but served it alongside the ham and let everyone put as much as they wanted on their slices of ham. Everyone who tried it liked it, and I will definitely be making this again next time I make a ham.
