Glazed Ham with Dijon-Pineapple Sauce

Glazed Ham with Dijon-Pineapple Sauce

Can a ham be a showstopper? Yes, and this one proves it. The sweet and spicy glaze and jewel-like cherries are what catch your eye. The depth of flavor is what convinces you.


  • 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup maple-flavored or pancake syrup
  • 1/4 cup GREY POUPON Dijon Mustard
  • 1 whole fully cooked boneless ham (5 pounds)
  • Whole cloves
  • 12 maraschino cherries, halved
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice, undrained


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix sugar, syrup and mustard until well blended; set aside.
  3. Use paring knife to make shallow even diagonal cuts across top of ham in one direction. Repeat, making slits in opposite direction to form diamond shapes.
  4. Insert cloves where cuts meet.
  5. Place ham on rack in shallow pan.
  6. Place cherries, cut-sides down, on surface of ham.
  7. Bake for 2 hours or until ham reaches internal temperature of 140 degrees F when tested in center with meat thermometer, occasionally brushing with 1/2 cup of the syrup mixture after 1 1/2 hours.
  8. Mix remaining syrup mixture with cornstarch and pineapple in saucepan; cook on medium-high heat until mixture comes to boil and thickens, stirring constantly.
  9. Serve with the sliced ham.
