For a long time, every time we have ham for a meal, I have made a sauce that is a variation on one my grandmother used to make. It is very simple and quick to make and adds a special zing to the ham. It is really sweet so a little goes a long way (unless you are my 7 year old, who will practically drink it straight out of the dish.)
We drizzle it on the sliced ham after it comes out of the oven. I have never tried to use it as a glaze while baking.
Sweet Ham Sauce
5 TBSP salted butter
1/3 cup + 1 to 2 TBSP packed brown sugar
1/3 cup yellow mustard
2 TBSP pineapple juice
In small skillet or saucepan, on low heat, melt butter, then stir in brown sugar and pineapple juice until well combined.
Whisk in mustard and simmer until thickened (2-3 minutes).
Serve warm, drizzled over hot sliced ham and grilled (or warmed) pineapple.
