  • 4.5-5 lbs spiral ham boneless
  • 1 1/2 cups water


  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 cup crushed pineapple
  • zest of 1 orange
  • juice of 1 orange

For Broiling (optional):

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar packed


  • Add water to the Instant Pot.
  • Place a trivet with handles inside the pot.
  • Create a small boat out of foil, and place the ham in it.
  • In a small bowl mix all the glaze ingredients. Use about 2/3 to brush and add between the ham slices.
  • Transfer the ham to the Instant Pot and pour the remaining glaze on top.
  • Close and lock the lid and cook on High Pressure for 5 minutes (see blog post for cooking time based on ham lbs), followed by 10 minutes Natural Pressure Release.

For Broiling (optional):

  • Open once the cooking is done, transfer the ham to a baking pan, still inside the foil.
  • Top with the remaining honey and brown sugar and broil for about 5 minutes, just until crispy.
  • Remove from oven and serve hot.
