Old Fashioned Pineapple-Glazed Ham

This is my mom’s recipe for a baked ham. It’s one of my favorite things to eat during the holidays, and now that I have the recipe, it might be showing up more often for dinner.

It’ll take a while to make (count on at least three hours of cook time), but it’s very easy once you’ve got the prep work out of the way!

Old Fashioned Pineapple-Glazed Ham

Serves 12


  • 1 spiral-sliced half ham, trimmed of fat
  • 1 (20 oz.) can pineapple slices, juices reserved
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 1/2 tablespoon flour
  • maraschino cherries, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350º F and place ham on its side in roasting dish.
  2. Pour 1/4 cup pineapple juice over ham and bake according to packaging directions. About 20-25 minutes per pound. Remove from oven 30 minutes before it’s finished cooking
  3. In a medium bowl, combine brown sugar, mustard and flour and mix together.
  4. Add in just enough of remaining pineapple juice to make a thick glaze.
