A succulent ham is a classic centerpiece for many holiday meals, but have you ever tried a pineapple and honey glazed ham? This twist on the traditional recipe adds juicy pineapple chunks and a touch of sweetness for a unique and tropical flavor that your guests will love.


  • 1 fully cooked bone-in ham (8-10 pounds)
  • 1 can of pineapple chunks (20 oz.), drained and juice reserved
  • 1/2 cup of honey
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves


  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F.
  2. Place the ham in a roasting pan and use a sharp knife to score the surface in a diamond pattern.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together the reserved pineapple juice, honey, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, cinnamon, and cloves.
  4. Brush the glaze over the ham, making sure to get it into the scored diamond pattern.
  5. Arrange the pineapple chunks around the ham, and pour any remaining glaze over the pineapple.
  6. Cover the ham and pan with foil and bake for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 140°F.
  7. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 30 minutes, basting with the pan juices every 10 minutes.
  8. Let the ham rest for 15 minutes before carving and serving.


  • If you prefer a spicier glaze, you can add a pinch of cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes to the mix.
  • For a more intense pineapple flavor, you can also use crushed pineapple instead of chunks.
  • Serve the ham with a side of roasted or grilled vegetables for a balanced and flavorful meal.


A pineapple and honey glazed ham is an easy and delicious way to add a tropical twist to your holiday table. The sweet and tangy glaze, combined with the juicy pineapple, will make this ham a standout dish that your family and friends will love.
