Ham season is upon us; I ordered my Easter ham at Garry’s weeks ago. I thought it to be timely to make a pineapple sauce for the ham steak I have in the freezer. There will be lot of leftovers after Easter and this super simple pineapple sauce is handy to doctor up some of those hammy leftovers.

1 Tbsp butter
1 can [1-3/4 cups] crushed pineapple including its juice
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt
1-2 Tbsp sugar

• In a small saucepan, melt the butter.
• Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens.
• Serve warm with ham.


  1. Zsuzsa, I believe I have never had pineapple sauce with ham... It sounds intriguing.

  2. This maybe a Canadian thing, though I am not sure. For celebrations, large hams are decorated with pineapple slices, cloves and maraschino cherries. I never actually recall eating the garnish, it never appealed to me. The pineapple sauce may have been a restaurant idea at one time, it certainly works with one serving of ham well... with mashed potatoes and a little bit of green something it has the making of a perfect comfort meal. Not very Hungarian of me, but then I lived in Canada for most of my life.
