Pineapple Sauce for Ham and Pineapple

Pineapple Sauce for Ham and Pineapple

A recipe from my childhood days, one of the recipes my mother excelled at. Ham with pineapple slices, always served with mashed potatoes and an iceberg lettuce salad. Sometimes I make that salad just to remember those days, I would always eat a bite of the salad with a a bite of the mashed potatoes, liking the crisp cold with soft warm mashed potatoes, then the sweetness of the pineapple sauce and salty ham. This memory remains a vivid one for me.

4 c. pineapple juice (unsweetened)

1/2 c. brown sugar

2 tbsp. ketchup

2 tbsp. soy sauce

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. ground black pepper

2 c. pineapple pieces, fresh or canned

2 tbsp. cornstarch

1/4 c. pineapple juice


In a medium sauce pan, add all the ingredients except the last two. Simmer for 15 minutes. 

Stir the cornstarch into the remaining 1/4 cup pineapple juice to dissolve, add to the sauce pan and stir continuously till thickened, remove from heat and use to glaze ham and then pour the rest in a saucier to add to the table for each to use. 

  • This sauce is great on on meatballs for an appetizer or party food.
  • This sauce is also great for a stir fry, I would simply add a bit of fresh ginger and red pepper flakes to boost the heat.
  • This sauce would also work well to glaze your pineapple slices over the BBQ, simply omit the pineapple pieces at the start.
