  1. Mix brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Stir vinegar, water, honey, and mustard together in a saucepan; add brown sugar mixture and whisk until blended. Turn heat to medium-high, stir crushed pineapple into mixture, and bring to a boil, whisking constantly, until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Pineapple juice can be substituted for the water in the glaze if desired.
  • Bake ham as directed. Thirty minutes prior to end of baking time, remove ham from oven and score in a diamond pattern. Pour glaze over ham, place back in oven, and bake for final 30 minutes. (Optional: baste with glaze runoff and drippings several times).
  • Grill 1 can sliced pineapple until just brown. Garnish finished ham with grilled sliced pineapple and 1 small jar maraschino cherries using toothpicks.
