Pineapple Brown Sugar Ham Glaze

We enjoy a glaze on our ham.  I used this glaze at Thanksgiving and Christmas.  We buy a Roundy’s ham from Copp’s, which is a local grocery store.  For many years I would buy the Honey Baked Ham from the Heavenly Ham store.  I bought a ham one day from Copp’s when it was on sale.  Hey, why not!  Well, now that is all we buy. Of course, I could try a Kirkland ham from Costco.  (I am a Costco fan!) 😉 For now, a Roundy’s ham with or without this glaze is Simple and Delicious!!

Ham Glaze


2 cups brown sugar
1 20 ounce can crushed pineapple with juice
Juice of one lemon (or 2 Tablespoons lemon juice)
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard (you can use yellow too.  I would use 1 Tablespoon)
2 Tablespoons corn starch mixed with 4 Tablespoons cold water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon clove (or not)


1.  Place all ingredients in a heavy bottom saucepan.  Mix well, heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally.  Bring to a simmer and cook for 1 to 2 minutes until sauce thickens.  Remove from heat.
2.  Pour some glaze over ham, 30 minutes before you will remove from oven.  You can put glaze you did not use in a bowl and serve at dinner.
