By Giant Eagle

Pineapple Chipotle Ham

Serves: 8
Prep Time: 15 min.
Cook Time: 2 hrs.


Preheat oven to 275°F. Place ham on its side in a baking dish. Pour ½ cup of water in the bottom of the pan. Peel the pineapple and cut in half, removing the core. Cut one half into 1-inch cubes and the other half into ¼-inch rounds. Tuck the pineapple rounds in the slices of the ham, two per section, alternating every other slice. Cover ham with a tented piece of foil and place in oven for one hour.

While the ham is cooking, strain the chipotle peppers, separating the chiles from the adobo sauce. To increase the spiciness, include one pepper in the glaze. To make the glaze, combine the diced pineapple, adobo sauce, chipotle pepper (optional), brown sugar, cider vinegar, and salt in a blender. Purée until smooth. If mixture needs more liquid, add a few tablespoons of water. Pour mixture into a sauce pan and bring to a boil; cook for 5-6 minutes.

After the ham has been cooking for an hour, remove from oven. Coat the entire ham with the glaze using a pastry brush. Return to oven. Repeat this process every 20 minutes for the remaining hour of cooking time.

Remove ham from oven and serve with mashed potatoes or your favorite side.
