Poached Cooking


YIELD: 8-10 servings

TOTAL TIME: 2 hours 30 min


  • 1 bone-in fully cooked spiral cut ham (about 9 lbs)
  • 2 cup pineapple juice
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 T cinnamon
  • 1 T ginger

Let the ham come to room temperature about 2 hours before cooking. Place in a deep roasting pan with grate.

Combine pineapple juice, brown sugar and spices in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for about 15 minutes until thick and syrupy.

Brush half of the glaze onto the ham and into the folds. Reserve half.

Place ham in a preheated 375°F oven and bake for 1½ to 2½ hours.

Brush the remaining glaze onto the ham. Return to the oven and bake for another 30-40 minutes or until the ham reaches 160°F.

Rest for 15 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
