This is an excellent glaze, I have used it for years. The only differences is that I add a little mustard to the glaze.

The sauce was too watery for me. I would of liked to have a thicker glaze on mine.

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.

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.

YUMMY! However, I jazzed it up a bit by adding all of the pineapple and marachino cherry juice to the brown sugar...also added a tiny bit of clove and a bit of honey. This ham was AWESOME:)

This is an excellent glaze that provides a wonderful flavor - this was the first ham I've ever made and it was a huge hit with my husband and my in-laws. My mother-in-law wants me to make this ...

I made this for Christmas dinner, much better than regular ham! I omitted the cherries, great even as left overs. And I didn't even like ham...

This taste just like the way my mom made it when i was kid. My daughter does not like meat a whole lot but she loved this.

Quick, Simple, & Easy... & It Works!

Finally, a simple, fast & easy glaze that is PERFECT in every way!
