With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Pineapple Ham Glaze Sauce

Pineapple Ham Glaze Sauce

While on the phone with my daughter, Jamie, I was telling her that I am finally getting around to posting this old family recipe we serve with ham.
She laughed and told me she made it just yesterday and had to ask her sister for the recipe.

Like many of you, my blog serves as a place for all of those favorites for family to refer to.

The few minutes it takes to mix this up and heat until thickened is so convenient and it is the prefect accompaniment for ham. The sweetness is just right to balance the salty ham.

I serve it alongside a baked ham for larger family gatherings, but for a smaller meal or weeknight meal, it is great on a grilled ham slice.

Pineapple Ham Glaze

another old recipe from my Betty Crocker's Cookbook (page 248)


1 cup brown sugar
1 Tbs. cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt (I omit)
1 small can crushed pineapple in syrup
2 Tbs. lemon juice
1 Tbs. prepared yellow mustard

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Over medium heat bring to a boil; boil 1 minute until thickened. Serve alongside baked ham.

I've never made a ham myself, but I think this would be the recipe i would make! I'm a big fan of sweet pineapple with the salty ham. What a lovely idea for Easter dinner!

The name itself sounds appetizing - Pineapple glaze. And it looks great too. Now if only someone would make it for me :-)

I used to make a great glaze for ham but misplaced my recipe. This one will make a perfect substitution. Such simple ingredients. Love that.

Your pineapple glaze sounds great! Might just add it to Easter dinner this year myself! Happy Easter Weekend-enjoy:@)

Lorraine, this glaze sounds lovely! Happy Easter!

Maggie Ann said...

Happy Easter! Your ham & glaze sound delish! I have two recipes I love. We are going to break tradition and have kolbasi....not sure of the spelling there. We did make pizzelles'. Yum. My gluten-free ones turned out great...nice and thin and crisp.

Your grandchildren look so delightful, you must have wonderful times together. I hope you have a very special Easter.
