Pineapple Glaze Sauce
A classic clove-infused pineapple glaze for ham.
2 tablespoons whole cloves
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
4 teaspoons prepared mustard
3 tablespoons lemon juice
- In a saucepan, stir together whole cloves, pineapple juice, brown sugar, prepared mustard, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil and cook until thickened. Strain; remove the whole cloves, and reserve.
- When baking ham: Remove the ham from the oven 30 minutes before the end of the baking time. Score the ham and stuff with the whole cloves. Spoon 1/3 of the glaze on top and brush with the remaining glaze at 10 minute intervals.
Makes about 1 1/2 cups sauce.
