1/2 cup fresh orange juice (from 2 oranges)

1/4 cup white wine vinegar

3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar

2 cups chopped pineapple (from 1/2 medium pineapple)

2 tablespoons minced red onion

1 jalapeno pepper, minced (remove ribs and seeds for a milder marmalade)

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1/2 pound thinly sliced ham

8 to 12 potato slider buns


  1. Whisk the orange juice, vinegar, brown sugar and 2 tablespoons water in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat until the sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes. Add the pineapple, red onion and jalapeno. Bring to a low boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture thickens, 15 to 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Let cool.
  2. Divide the ham among the buns. Top with the pineapple marmalade.
