Equipment

  • small bowl
  • whisk
  • Instant Pot
  • instant-read thermometer
  • Measuring spoons
  • Liquid measuring cup

Ingredients

FOR THE HAM:

  • 3-5 pound spiral sliced ham thawed
  • 1 ½ cups water

FOR THE GLAZE:

  • ½ cup pineapple juice
  • cup honey
  • 2 Tablespoons light brown sugar

FOR THE FINAL GLAZE:

  • ¾ cups granulated sugar
  • ¾ teaspoons onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • teaspoon paprika
  • teaspoon ground cloves
  • pinch allspice
  • 6 Tablespoons ham juice

Instructions

PREP INSTANT POT:

  • Place the trivet inside of the instant pot and pour in water.

MAKE GLAZE:

  • In a small bowl whisk together pineapple juice, honey, and brown sugar.
    Whisk together the ham glaze in a small bowl.

PREP HAM:

  • Place the ham on a sheet of heavy-duty foil that is big enough to almost cover the ham. Fold and crease the foil so that it fits like a bowl around the ham.
  • Separate the slices of the ham so that the glaze can get between the slices. Slowly pour the glaze over the ham, and make sure the foil stays wrapped around the ham.
    Pour the ham glaze between slices of ham.

COOK HAM:

  • Carefully place the ham in the Instant Pot onto the trivet.
    Wrap up the ham an place it into the Instant Pot and cook.
  • Close the lid, and place the vent to “sealed”. Cook on HIGH pressure for 20 minutes.
  • Let the Instant Pot naturally release for 15 minutes. Then, move the vent to “venting”.
  • Use an instant-read thermometer to make sure the ham’s internal temperature is between 135-150 degrees F. If it’s not, then cook for another 4-5 minutes on HIGH.
  • Remove the ham from the Instant Pot and place it on a large platter, make sure the foil is still wrapped around it.
    Place the cooked ham on a platter.

MAKE FINAL GLAZE:

  • Remove all but 6 tablespoons of the ham juice left in the instant pot. Whisk the granulated sugar, onion powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, paprika, cloves, allspice into the ham juice in the instant pot.
    Add the glaze ingredients to the instant pot insert and cook until reduced and thickened.
  • Set the Instant Pot to Sauté and bring the mixture to a boil. Let it boil for 1 minute so it can thicken a little, and then turn off the instant pot and transfer the glaze to a small bowl to cool for 5 minutes (it will thicken as it cools).

FINISH HAM:

  • Remove the ham from the foil (be careful, hot ham juice will spill out) and place the ham on a serving tray. Brush the ham with the glaze and serve.
