Recipe type: Meats
Cuisine: American
Serves: 7-8 servings
  • 6 oz can Pineapple Juice
  • ¼ cup Honey
  • 1 tbs Creole Mustard

  • 1 tsp Garlic Salt
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 6 lb Ham, semi-boneless, fully cooked & NOT a spiral cut

Create Injection
  1. In a small sauce pan, heat pineapple juice, honey, mustard, black pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic salt & paprika until solids are dissolved as much as possible.
  2. Let cool for a few minutes.
Inject the ham
  1. Completely cover the ham with plastic wrap to prevent liquid from spraying while injecting.
  2. Using a turkey injector, inject at least ¾ of the flavored-injection liquid into various areas of the ham and reserve the other ¼ for basting.
Rub it with butter
  1. Remove the plastic wrap and generously rub butter or margarine all over the ham.
Bake the ham
  1. Cover the ham with aluminum foil and bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes per pound or until internal temperature reaches 140 degrees.
  2. After about 1½ hours, remove foil and you can baste the ham once or twice, if you desire.
  3. After ham has reached 140 degrees internal temperature, remove from oven and let rest 10 minutes before cutting.
You can cook a ham up to 10 lbs. with the same flavor-injection liquid ingredient ratios.

If you cook a larger ham, be sure to cook it longer and according to instructions on the package.

You can add or subtract ingredients to your flavor-injection based on your likes.
