Main Course

Baked Ham with Brown Sugar Pineapple Glaze

Baked-Ham-with-Brown-Sugar-Pineapple-Glaze

1 (10 lb.) Ham, spiral cut
1 cup Brown sugar
1/2 of a (20 oz.) can Pineapple tidbits in 100% pineapple juice
1 (20 oz.) can Pineapple slices in 100% pineapple juice
Non-stick cooking spray
1 cup Robert Rothschild Farm Roasted Pineapple & Habanero Dip

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Remove all packaging material from ham and wrap in heavy-duty aluminum foil. Place ham on rack inside of roasting pan. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes. In the meantime, make the glaze: combine the brown sugar with the juice from the pineapple tidbits in a saucepan. Heat on high until sauce comes to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 of the can of pineapple tidbits. Add 1/4 cup of the Roasted Pineapple & Habanero Dip and stir to combine. Remove ham from oven when it has cooked 1 hour and 10 minutes. Carefully remove ham from foil wrapping and place back on rack inside the roasting pan. Pour glaze over ham and place back into the oven. Bake ham, uncovered, for another 30 minutes (total cooking time for the 10 pound ham is 1 hour and 40 minutes). While ham is baking, drain pineapple rings from the can. Coat a grill pan with non-stick cooking spray and heat on stovetop on medium-high heat for a few minutes. Add pineapple rings and grill for a few minutes. Turn pineapple rings over with a spatula and grill for another few minutes. Remove ham from oven and transfer to a platter. Serve with grilled pineapple rings and Roasted Pineapple & Habanero Dip on the side.
