Pineapple-mustard Glazed Ham

PRINT RECIPE


Author: Debbie Arnold - Dining with Debbie


Christmas dinner at my grandparentshouse always featured ham my grandfather
had smoked in the backyard smokehouse. To fancy it up. my grandmother would cut
criss-cross marks into the deep layer of fat, periodically piercing here and there
with whole clove. And just to make sure that ham was the star of the mealshe'd
layer pineapple rings centered wi tmaraschino cherries all over the outside and then
baste it with a brown sugar or molasses and mustard glaze during it's long, slow
cooking.


The sweetness of the pineapple and cherries would combine with the salty smokiness
of the ham for a bite of pure joy! By the time the ham was donethe pineapple and
cherries would have caramelized practically into candy.


I've updated her classic Christmas ham preparation to suit our family'tastes and
lifestyle. Rather than pineapple ringsI use a pineapple juice reductiocombined with
Dijomustardwhole cloves and fresh thyme tglaze Petit Jean Meats Smoked
