  • 1 Pina Ham, about 1 to 1 1/2 kilos (Any brand)
  • 1 small can pineapple slices in syrup
  • 1 cup pineapple juice

  1. To form a diamond pattern, score and cut slit the fat of the ball ham. Combine the liquid drippings from the ham, the pineapple juice and the syrup from the sliced pineapple in a saucepan, bring to a boil over.
  2. Carefully place the ham in the sauce pan then try to place the pineapple slices over the ham.
  3. Bring to a boil and simmer at low to medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Remove the cooked ham and pineapple slices from the pan, keep aside. Continue to simmer the remaining liquid until the glaze start to thicken, stirring occasionally.

  6. Put the ham in the middle of an oven preheated to 200ᵒ C, bake for about 10 to 15 minutes, brushing with the pineapple honey glaze every a couple of times until ham fats start to caramelize.
  7. When done remove from oven and place in a platter with the cooked  sliced pineapple, pour over the remaining glaze and serve. Enjoy!
