Thanksgiving Ham Glaze

This beautiful masterpiece is brought to you by my favorite aunt Linda.  She introduced her families secret glaze recipe last year and I will forever be grateful!  The best thing about this sweet ham glaze is its super easy to make and has a beautiful presentation and Mmmm delicious!


1 spiral-sliced half ham
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
1 Tablespoon corn starch
8 1/2 oz. can sliced pineapple
1 Tablespoon prepared mustard
1 small jar maraschino cherries
Several toothpicks


Preheat the oven as directed on the ham package.  Arrange the pineapple slices on top of the ham, securing them with toothpicks.  Place a cherry in the center of each pineapple ring and secure with a toothpick.  Follow the instructions for baking the ham.


Remove the ham from the oven about 30 minutes before the end of the warming time.  In a small cooking pan, combine brown sugar, salt, lemon juice, corn starch, prepared mustard, and just enough of the reserved pineapple juice to make a thick glaze.  Bring to a slight boil.  Spoon the glaze over the ham and bake for the remaining 30 minutes.  Remove the ham from the oven, transfer to a cutting board and carve.
