Louisiana Style Glazed Ham
Blue Ribbon Recipe
Not everyone in Louisiana makes their ham like this, but they should. It's sticky and sweet with a little bit of tang. Adding mustard to the glaze gives the overall ham a slightly tangy flavor which is a nice contrast to the sweet sugar and pineapple juice. Boiling the ham before baking means it cooks quickly in the oven and the ham becomes super tender. Adding pineapple and cherries makes a beautiful presentation.
Note: If you use the cherries and pineapple slices, add a bit of their juices to the glaze for added flavor. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Louisiana Style Glazed Ham
- Cover the pot with a large piece of aluminum foil that you have poked a couple of holes in. Cook for approximately 15 minutes per pound of ham. For example, an 8 pound ham would need to cook for about 2 hours. Keep an eye on it during cooking as it has a tendency to bubble over if the heat is too high.
