  • Place ham shank or rump portion, fat side up, on a rack in a roasting pan. Insert meat thermometer into thickest part of ham, not touching bone. Cover loosely with foil.

  • Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 1 hour.

  • For glaze, in a small saucepan, combine brown sugar, corn syrup, cornstarch, and pineapple juice. Cook and stir over medium heat until bubbly. Remove from heat.

  • Remove the ham from the oven; remove foil. Brush ham generously with glaze. Return ham to oven. Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes more or until ham is well glazed and meat thermometer registers 140 degree F.
