Best Pineapple Glazed Ham in the Pressure Cooker

Hello there! Today I am sharing the best pineapple glazed ham recipe made in the pressure cooker method.

I just so happen to be madly in love with my pressure cooker and truth be told I haven’t even looked at my stove in almost two years, except to dust it off.

This pineapple glazed ham recipe does call for a tad bit of oven use after cooking in the Instant Pot pressure cooker.

Ham in the Instant Pot


Typically when I think of Easter..of course, the obvious first comes to mind with being part of the Catholic religion. Then I think of ham, eggs, and bunnies. Let’s not forget a few butterflies in the mix.

Ham doesn’t always have to be served on Easter, especially now with our pressure cookers. It is so simple to pop one in, little mess, and then we can have some leftovers for the week. Ham sandwiches and more. Perhaps a ham and cheese pie, like the one we made HERE.

Or perhaps you like something on the sweeter side with ham. We have an amazing ham puff bake that is a tradition to make on Christmas morning HERE.

If you want to get a tad creative you can use an egg bite mold HERE and prepare tasty eggs and ham mini bites. These would also be lovely if hosting a brunch and you are just looking for finger foods.

Fit 1 slice of ham into each muffin cup (ham will hang over edges of cups). Crack 1 egg into each cup. Bake or Pressure Cook  for about 13 minutes with a quick release. If baking I would set temperature to 325. Enjoy!

Now for the best pineapple glazed recipe in the pressure cooker. Enjoy!

Cook Time 15 minutes


  • 1/2 Cup Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 Cup Honey
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 TBSP Orange Juice
  • 1 TSP Cinnamon
  • 1 TSP Nutmeg
  • 1 Can Sliced Pineapple
  • 1 Medium Ham Bone-In or Boneless
  • 1 Cup Water


  • Combine maple syrup, honey, brown sugar, orange juice, pineapple juice from can, cinnamon, nutmeg ingredients in a medium sauce pan, stirring well
  • Put one cup of water in your pot. Place the ham in a pressure cooker (if you have a rack or trivet even better) and half of the liquid of ingredients above. Cook for 15 minutes on manual HIGH setting and let Naturally release. Be sure to save all the juices for later to pour on top.
  • Transfer the ham to an oven safe dish and baste liberally with the glaze and place a few pineapple slices on top.
  • You can set your Ninja Foodi, or Crisplid temp 390 degrees and then allow the glaze to caramelize and just slightly char on the edges (this will happen quickly). Be sure to watch it. Yummy, best ham ever. ENJOY.

    Such beautiful patterns to choose from but I would have to say my favorite was the Tumbling Hydrangea. Thank you to all for this beautiful giveaway! I am a follower of On Sutton Place. That ham with the pineapple glaze looks just delicious too!

    It’s almost impossible to pick a Favorite pattern. I’ll have to go with the one above called Greta’s garden because I love the country French yellow and blue .

    Heirloom Rose just says Home to me. I look forward to your Facebook live presentations. The food looks fabulous and you are tempting me to purchase an Instant Pot. Cooking for one can be a bummer but at least with this its fast and easy clean up. I really enjoyed your videos with your Mom and Sister. Your Mom’s makeup info was great. She’s very pretty. Thank you for sharing with all of us.
