  • To make a Brown Sugar and Pineapple Glazed Ham, you will need the following equipment:
  • Baking dish or roasting pan
  • Basting Brush
  • Aluminum foil
  • Meat thermometer
  • Sharp knife for scoring the ham
  • Saucepan for making the glaze.
  • Make sure that all of your equipment is clean and sanitized before using it to prepare your ham.


  • (6 pound)  fully-cooked, bone-in ham
  • fresh pineapple
  • 2  (6 ounce) cans pineapple juice
  • 1  cup  brown sugar


  • Step 1
    Gather all ingredients.
  • Step 2
    Preheat the stove to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Place ham, cut-side down, into a broiling container.
  • Step 3
    Remove skin pineapple with a sharp blade and cut off any earthy colored spots or skin abandoned. Cut pineapple into 1/2-inch-thick rings and utilize a round shaper to eliminate centers. Pin rings onto ham with toothpicks.
  • Step 4
    Bake ham in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  • Step 5
    While ham heats, blend pineapple squeeze and earthy colored sugar in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium power until coat is bubbling and somewhat thickened. Work cautiously on the grounds that coating will be tacky and exceptionally hot.
  • Step 6
    Pour 1/2 of the coating equitably over ham and pineapple rings. Heat ham for 30 minutes more, then pour remaining coating over ham.
  • Step 7
    Keep baking ham until a meat thermometer embedded into the thickest piece of ham peruses 140 degrees F (60 degrees C), 30 to an hour more.
  • Step 8
