Remember those baked hams gussied up with pineapple rings and maraschino cherries? There's a reason they became so popular in the '50s — pineapple contributes sweetness and a little acid to salty ham. But here, with pineapple juice concentrated into a syrup and combined with thyme and Dijon mustard, the effect is homey, more subtle, and less overtly sweet.
