    This is a delicious way to bake ham, and very simple. This is the way we have always done it in my family, but we use Dijon mustard, and add cherries with the pineapple rings. Depending on the size of the ham, I usually use about a cup of dark brown sugar, and add enough Dijon to make a good paste consistency. I have found that the thicker the paste is, the better, because it tends to melt and run off the ham as it bakes if it's too thin.

    Wanted to try something with a little more kick than our usual pineapple juice and brown sugar. The Dijon mustard I used was just what I wanted. I also used a cup of brown sugar, added enough mustard to make a paste and used about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of pineapple juice. It was a very tasty sauce and I will be using this mixture on my ham from now on.

    why only 31/2 stars? This is the best baked ham recipe that I have ever tried. I have used it about 5 times since last year. I am Polish past 60 so you know I have baked plenty of hams in my time.

    Had to come on and review this! Made this for dinner, but used Horseradish mustard instead of yellow, I just can't handle yellow mustard. This was delicious! the "glaze" was perfect. A great mixture of Salty and sweet flavors! Thanks so much for a wonderful recipe!


I live in the San Francisco Bay area and I work for Social Services in Contra Costa County. My favorite cookbook is "White Trash Cooking" It makes me laugh every time I read it. My passions are traveling, reading and psycology. My pet peeves are self-centered people. If I had a month off I would travel to Cuernavaca and stay with a Mexican family and learn Spanish.
