To cook Chipotle Pineapple Ham, you need about 15 minutes of preparation time. The time needed to cook this Chipotle Pineapple Ham is about 1 hour 30 minutes , and you can serve your Chipotle Pineapple Ham within 4 hours 45 minutes . The following are the steps to cook Chipotle Pineapple Ham easily:
- 1 Place chipotle peppers, brown sugar, pineapple, nutmeg, ginger, and bourbon whiskey in a blender and blend until smooth.
- 2 Use a sharp knife to make diagonal cuts in the ham about 1 inch apart and 1/2 inch deep in a diamond pattern. Place smoked ham in a large bowl; pour the chipotle marinade over the ham and refrigerate ham in marinade for 3 to 6 hours, turning ham occasionally in the marinade to flavor all sides.
- 3 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- 4 Remove ham from marinade, reserving the marinade; place ham into a roasting pan.
- 5 Roast in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
- 6 Bring the marinade to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk cornstarch and water together in a small bowl until smooth; whisk the mixture into the hot marinade. Reduce heat to low and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes.
- 7 After ham has baked for 30 minutes, spoon the hot marinade over the ham.
- 8 Return ham to oven and continue baking until glaze is baked onto the ham and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the ham, not touching bone, reads at least 145 degrees F (65 degrees C), about 1 1/2 more hours. Baste ham with the glaze every 30 minutes.
- Cook's Note:
- Important! It's gonna be really spicy if you don't de-seed the chipotle peppers. I usually deseed all the peppers. If I want it spicy, I leave a couple peppers with their seeds intact.
