Recipe of the week – Decidedly Retro Pineapple Glazed Ham

  • One cooked ham, bone in
  • 1 T flour
  • 1 large can crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 T cornstarch
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 T white wine
  • pinch ground cinnamon
  • fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 can pineapple rings

Lightly score surface of ham. And place on a roasting pan. Combine all other ingredients in a saucepan and cook until the cornstarch dissolves. Bring to a boil for 1 minute. Pour sauce over ham. Tent ham with foil and bake for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, basting occasionally.

About ten minutes before serving, place the pineapple rings around the ham to warm and caramelize slightly.

To serve: carve several slices from the ham and arrange attractively, with the pineapple slices on a large platter with the bone-in ham. Garnish with parsley and maraschino cherries for the full 50’s effect.
