Can’t believe the year is coming to an end!

I love this fuzzy warm time of the year as we gather with family & friends to reminisce all the wonderful memories.

The ups and downs, the lessons we’ve learned, to reflect how much we’ve grown, the incredible people we’ve met, the laughter, the tears…and simply be thankful for all that life have to offer.

Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day.

Ingredients

Thickener

  • 2.5 tablespoons (22.5g) cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons (45ml) cold water

Instructions

  • Pressure Cook Ham: Add 1 (14oz or 398ml) can of pineapples and 2 tablespoons (30ml) dijon mustard in Instant Pot. Give it a quick mix. Layer a stainless steel trivet and place ham on top. Drizzle ¼ cup (63g) honey all over the top of the ham.

    Pressure Cook at High Pressure:
    -8-9 lbs Bone-in Uncut Ham: 20 minutes + 30 minutes Natural Release
    -6-7 lbs Bone-in Uncut Ham: 15 minutes + 30 minutes Natural Release
    -Spiral Ham (Cut Ham): 3 minutes + 20 minutes Natural Release will be warm enough
    Check internal temperature at its’ thickest part with an accurate food thermometer.
    *Pro Tip: 95°F (35°C) - 110°F (43°C) is plenty hot enough to serve a piece of ham. Especially with some hot pineapple sauce! If for some reason, the ham is at 80°F (27°C), place the lid back on and pressure cook the ham at High Pressure for another 5 minutes and 10 minutes Natural Release.
  • Make Honey Pineapple Sauce: Rest ham on a large chopping board or serving bowl (the internal temperature will continue to rise). 

    Bring the sauce back to a simmer by pressing the "Cancel" button, then "Saute" button. Taste and gradually add in brown sugar to desired sweetness. 
    *Pro Tip: You will want it to be quite sweet to balance the salty smoky ham flavor (for reference, we added roughly ¼ cup (50g) brown sugar). 
    Mix 2.5 tbsp (22.5g) cornstarch with 3 tbsp (45ml) cold water in a small mixing bowl. Add the cornstarch mixture one third at a time to thicken the yummy honey pineapple sauce until desired thickness.
  • Serve Ham with Honey Pineapple Sauce: Cut the juicy and warmed Instant Pot Ham with a sharp knife and a fork. Serve it with the yummy Honey Pineapple Ham Sauce. Enjoy & happy holidays!~ 🙂

The beauty of cooking ham is it is already fully cooked, so we’re simply warming up the ham and making a smoky honey pineapple ham sauce with this recipe.
