I really wanted to make something a little different to go with this New Year’s honey-baked ham we were having for dinner. I could’ve taken the easy way out and offer up some kind of gourmet mustard but what fun is that? In the end I decided to make this Pineapple Sauce for Ham.
Not only does this pineapple sauce go great with baked ham, but it's also super easy to make. I have literally made it an hour before heading over to my mother-in-law’s for Thanksgiving dinner. Yes, it's that quick and easy to make. And the best part is this recipe only requires 6 simple ingredients!
You most likely already have all the ingredients in your pantry except possibly the cans of crushed pineapples. If you have cans of sliced pineapples you can chop them up or even pulse them in your food processor.
Like most of you, I prefer easy-to-make recipes around the Holidays. We all have a lot going on and don't have time to spend days in the kitchen making all sorts of dishes. This pineapple sauce recipe is super quick & easy to make! If you can boil water you can make this delicious sauce to go with your ham.
If you are in need of a glaze for your ham, you have to make my Brown Sugar Glaze for Ham recipe. Easy to make and gives your ham a delicious flavor. Have a leftover Ham Bone and are not sure what to do with it? Check out my Slow Cooker Ham and 15 Bean Soup recipe. Absolutely delicious!
For a pineapple sauce with a little more kick to it, I recommend trying my Pineapple Jalapeño Hot Sauce.
