2 hrs 30 mins


  • 1 6-8 pound cooked ham, rump half

  • 1 cup chopped fresh pineapple

  • ¼ cup honey

  • 8 - 10 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • 2 - 4 tablespoon unsweetened pineapple juice (optional)

  • Fresh pineapple wedges (optional)

  • Desired mustard (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. If desired, score ham in a diamond pattern by making shallow diagonal cuts at 1-inch intervals.

  2. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Insert an oven-going meat thermometer into center of ham. The thermometer should not touch bone. Cover with foil; bake for 1-1/2 hours.

  3. Meanwhile, for glaze, in a food processor or blender combine 1 cup pineapple, honey, garlic, and crushed red pepper. Cover and process or blend until nearly smooth.

  4. Brush ham generously with glaze. Bake, uncovered, for 45 to 60 minutes more or until thermometer registers 140°F. If desired, drizzle ham with pineapple juice to moisten. If desired, garnish with pineapple wedges and serve with mustard.


Instead of pineapple, use canned apricots or peaches. Substitute maple syrup for the honey.
