Baked Ham with Pineapple-Honey Glaze

Baked Ham with Pineapple-Honey Glaze is one of the easiest holiday dishes to prepare. I often choose a boneless cooked ham which can be purchased at supermarkets. I mix the ingredients for the glaze and baste it on the ham before baking. The extent of baking depends on the size of your ham. A medium-sized boneless ham, about 6 to 8 pounds, for our family bakes quick. Filipinos enjoy sweet flavors so I made a pineapple-honey glaze with a hint of a few spices. Make this for Easter, Christmas or any family get-together. This is an AsianInAmericamag recipe. Serves 4 to 6.
*Baking time indicated is for a 4-lb. boneless ham.

  • Large roasting pan - 9 x 13 inches


  • 1 4 to 6 pounds boneless cooked ham
  • 1 cup pineapple preserves bottled
  • 1/2 cup Honey Ridge Farms Honey Creme with Lemon honey or use any brand of regular honey
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely minced garlic
  • 1 piece bay leaf crumbled
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper powder


  • Preheat oven to 325 F. Pre-grease a shallow roasting pan, about 9 x 13 inches.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, mix the glaze ingredients : pineapple preserves, honey, brown sugar, ground cloves, garlic, bay leaf, black pepper powder. Blend well. You will have about 1 1/2 cups of glaze.
  • Using a large spoon, baste the top of the ham with the glaze, leaving 1/2 cup aside for use later.
  • Place the ham on top of a rack inside the roasting pan. Cover the entire ham with foil.
  • Bake at 325 F. Cooking time for a medium sized boneless ham like this one is 15 minutes per pound. For a 4-lb. ham, it took 60 minutes of baking.
  • At the last 20 minutes of baking, remove foil and baste the last half cup of the pineapple-honey glaze on top. Continue baking the ham till the top is golden brown.
  • To serve: Slice ham in 1/2 inch thick slices. Best to slice ham only a few slices at a time to preserve the tender, moist qualities. Serve ham warm or chilled.
  • Cook's comments: I used Honey Ridge Farms Honey Creme for this recipe. They were given as gifts. Feel free to use other brands if preferred.
