Ham with spicy sweet pineapple orange glaze

I have wanting a ham.. not your ordinary plain ole' ham but a beautifully glazed slightly spicy sweet one... I came up with this recipe and it turned out wonderful... enjoy

1/2 ham (I used an 8 lb. shank with a bone in ham)
1/2 cup water
1 8 oz can crushed pineapple
1 T. marshino cherry juice
2 T. spicy deli mustard
1/2 cup orange marmelade
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 clove garlic finely minced

In large pan place ham and score the top.  Add water to pan and place in 350 degree oven for about 1 1/2 hours.  Mix remaining ingredients and drizzle over the ham making sure some of the pineapple remains in the scored spots. Place back in the oven about 45 minutes to an hour, glazing the ham with the juices from the pan.  Remove from oven and carve serving with a little of the glazing liquid.  Enjoy


  1. This sounds absolutely amazing. I have a ham in the freezer waiting for something special. I am going to try this.

  2. Oh Girl - you are so creative. This sounds like it would knock my taste buds into outer orbit. LOVE the glad you shared. I will remember it when I'm ready to make a ham again.
