a half ham is way too much for two not so hungry people.

This pineapple glaze was delish:

1 cup brown sugar
1 (10 ounce) can crushed pineapple

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon dry or prepared mustard
1 tablespoon cornstarch

1/4 teaspoon
salt

Place all ingredients in a small saucepan including the juice/syrup from the pineapple.
Turn heat on to medium and stir constantly to prevent burning. ( had to turn it up quite a bit to get it to boil.)
Continue to heat until mixture thickens and comes to a boil.
Allow mixture to boil for approximately 1 minute.
If mixture refuses to thicken, add more cornstarch- a little at a time.

I doubled the recipe so there would be enough not only to glaze the ham, but to pour over individual slices. Needless to say, even though we ate ham for dinner last night and fried some up for breakfast, there is still a virtually whole half ham in the fridge. Anyone want to come over for dinner?

You are going to be eating ham FOREVER! It does sound good but unfortunately I can't make it to your place for dinner tonight.

Next time just get a big slice of ham from the deli. Seriously.

I know! Maybe we'll have a ham open house, but more likely we'll end up freezing a bunch, and making soup in a month. Don't worry, you can have ham at our house when you come for birthdays.

Oh, and trust me, I wouldn't have bought a whole half ham for the two of us, it was a Christmas gift that was taking up way too much room in the freezer.
