  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute the ham and onion in the skillet for 5 minutes. Add 1/2 the amount of juice from the can of pineapple and allow it to be absorbed by the ham, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Stir in the pineapple chunks, apple and brown sugar. Pour in any remaining pineapple juice only if mixture is getting too thick. Stir all ingredients together well and allow to heat through, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Loved the mixture of flavors! So simple, yet so good! I used crushed pineapple instead of chunks, and served it over plain white rice. Note that if you don't peel the apple, the peel 'bleeds' on itself after a day or two, and doesn't look very pretty. The 2nd time I made this, I used pineapple chunks instead of crushed. I think I prefer the chunks! Note that one bunch of chopped green onions goes better with this dish than regular onions (in my opinion), and it also adds some color. I didn't find salt and pepper necessary, by the way. Thanks for the recipe!

I didn't think this was very good. To its credit, the flavors were better the next day, but I will not make it again.

A very good recipe, I added extra brown sugar and it was very tasty.

A lot of reviewers said it tasted best the next day for left overs so I made it tonight and will let it sit till dinner tomorrow. I will be serving it with couscous and a garden salad. It smells delish!

Needs something extra to spice it up a bit, like curry.

This is much better with raisins and more brown sugar, but it lacks something... I'm not sure what. This recipe comes with a challenge! May the force be with you.

This recipe didn't quite work for me. It was surprisingly bland and unexciting both in texture and taste. I think the basic idea is good, but this recipe needs some significant tweaking.

Awesome for ham leftovers. I put some soy sauce on my couscous & it perfectly balanced the sweet from the fruit. Thanks Caity-0!
