Make this easy recipe for a pineapple brown sugar ham glaze. This pineapple brown sugar glaze is a crushed pineapple glaze for ham, pork chops or chicken.
For years I prepared my ham glaze the way, my mother did. Open a can of pineapple rings, place on ham and then pile on the brown sugar. Some of you may say yuck but others like me grew up on that ham. It was good, very good because my mom made it but it was just lacking something. I never realized it until I tried this pineapple brown sugar glaze recipe.
Just by adding a few ingredients in a saucepan and heating up the brown sugar with that awesome pineapple with the juice, it will make the most awesome crushed pineapple glaze for ham. That’s right, easy peasy! I still add pineapple rings on top of my ham, I mean what’s a holiday ham dinner without those browned rings of pineapple hanging precariously on top of the ham. Yes, and I still use toothpicks to attach them to keep them exactly where they look the prettiest.
