Pineapple Glazed Ham with Gravy
Ham & Glaze:
7-10 lb spiral sliced ham
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1, 20 oz can crushed pineapple, undrained
3 tablespoons lemon juice (bottled works fine)
1 tablespoon Dijon or spicy brown mustard
1/3 - 1/2 cup strained juices from baked ham
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 - 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
Place ham flat side down in a large baking dish or roasting pan. Cook uncovered at 325 degrees for 45 minutes.
Meanwhile in a sauce pan combine brown sugar, cornstarch, salt, crushed pineapple with juices, lemon juice, and mustard. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cook for about a minute stirring constantly until thickened. Once ham has baked for 45 minutes pour this glaze over the ham and use a basting brush to coat the ham well with the glaze. Return to oven and bake an additional 45 minutes or until ham is heated completely through.
To Make Gravy:
Place ham on a serving platter. Strain all juices and bits from the baking dish into a saucepan. You should end up with about 1/3 - 1/2 cup of juices. Add 2 tablespoons of butter to the juices in saucepan and heat until butter is melted. Add 2 tablespoons of flour and whisk well. Slowly add 1 to 1 1/2 cups chicken broth depending on how thick you like your gravy and heat until boiling whisking constantly. Remove from heat and serve with ham.
