Makes: 8 to 10 servings Total Time: 4 hr 45 min
Category: Dinner Entrees Sub Category: Pork Entrees

what you need
  • 1 (8-pound) bone-in, shank-portion smoked ham
  • 2 cans (46-ounce each) pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons brown sugar, divided
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard
  • Garnish: canned pineapple slices
make it
- Place ham in a large stockpot and add enough pineapple juice to cover two-thirds of ham. Add 1/4 cup brown sugar. Bring mixture to a rolling boil over medium-high heat on stovetop; cook for 15 minutes. Turn ham over and continue to boil for 15 minutes longer.

- Remove pot from heat and let ham cool in pineapple-juice mixture for approximately 1 hour.

- Preheat oven to 350F.

- Place ham in a roasting pan and cover with aluminum foil. Bake until internal temperature of ham reaches 160F, or for approximately 30 minutes per pound (4 hours for an 8-pound ham).

- In a small saucepan, combine honey, mustard, and remaining 2 tablespoons brown sugar and bring to a boil over medium-low heat on stovetop to melt sugar.

- Remove ham from oven and glaze with honey mixture, reserving remaining glaze. Return ham to oven, uncovered, for 10 minutes.

- Remove ham again and garnish with pineapple slices. (Use toothpicks, if necessary, to hold pineapple slices in place.) Glaze ham again with remaining honey mixture and return to oven, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Let ham cool before slicing.
