Glazed Ham Recipe Using Preserves

Use a fruit preserve in this glazed ham recipe instead of a sticky glaze. Choose your favorite: pineapple, apricot or orange marmalade. Be sure to use the same juice as the preserves.


  • 5 to 7 lb. bone in ham
  • 1 (6 oz) can pineapple juice
  • 1 (10 oz) jar pineapple preserves


Pre-heat oven to 325 F.

Make criss-cross cuts about 1/2 inch deep into the surface of the ham.

Place the ham on a rack in a shallow baking pan.

Cover the top and sides of the ham with poured pineapple juice.

Cover tightly with aluminum foil (the ham, not the pan, Sam I Am).

Bake for 1 1/2 hours.

Uncover and brush preserves all over the ham. Insert a meat thermometer.

Bake, uncovered, for about 30 minutes or until thermometer reads 140 F.

Remove from the oven and place on a serving platter.

Allow to rest 30 minutes before carving.

Serves 12.
