How To Make Spicy Pineapple Glazed Ham

A blend of slightly sweet and spicy, this richly glazed ham is a flavorful dish with a glaze made with pineapple, marsala, wine, and lots of spices.

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 4 hours
Rest Time: 20 minutes
Total: 4 hours 35 minutes



  • 18lbssmoked ham on the bone
  • lbspineapple
  • 2medium onions
  • 2bay leaves
  • 2cupdry Marsala
  • 2cupdry Riesling
  • 2cupwater
  • ½tspnutmeg,freshly grated
  • ¼cupwhole grain mustard
  • 2tbspdijon mustard
  • 2large jalapenos


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

  2. Cut off the ham skin, leaving a thick layer of fat. Lightly score the fat in a diamond pattern.

  3. Arrange the pineapple rings in a roasting pan. Add the onions, bay leaves, Marsala, Riesling, water, and nutmeg. Set the ham on top, fat side up.

  4. Cover with parchment paper, then tightly cover the pan with foil.

  5. Bake the ham for 40 minutes. Turn the oven to 325 degrees F and bake for 2 hours and 30 minutes longer, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part without touching the bone registers 120 degrees F.

  6. In a food processor, puree the chopped pineapple, then blend with the mustards.

  7. Remove the ham from the oven. Turn the oven to 400 degrees F.

  8. Spread the pineapple mustard all over the ham, and arrange the jalapeño rings on top in even rows.

  9. Bake the ham for 15 minutes, or until nicely browned.

  10. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 20 minutes.

  11. Strain the pan juices into a saucepan and boil over high heat for about 20 minutes until reduced to 3 cups. Skim off the fat and pour the juices into a warmed gravy boat.

  12. Carve the ham in thin slices and serve with the pan juices. Enjoy!
