Pineapple and brown sugar glaze for gammon

    15 min

    A simple, sweet glaze for bolied ham or gammon - it's simply pineapple juice and brown sugar. The cherries are optional but I suppose traditional! If you could also add a teaspoon of French mustard.

    1. Before baking ham for the final hour, place pineapple slices on top with a cherry in centre of each ring (if using).
    2. In a medium microwave safe bowl combine brown sugar and reserved pineapple juice. Mix together and microwave for about 5 minutes, until mixture is thick. Pour some of this glaze over the ham about every 15 minutes in the last hour of baking, until all is used.

    This is an excellent glaze, I have used it for years. The only differences is that I add a little mustard to the glaze.  -  18 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a wonderful recipe for ham. I did add some ground cloves and dijon mustard to the pineapple juice mixture and it gave the ham a great flavor. I would definitely use this again.  -  05 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Quick, easy and really permeates into the meat. My father in law thought it was from a "Ham Company" since it was so flavorful. Nice way to jazz up a ham.  -  06 Oct 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
