Peach-Glazed Ham

  • 5-7 pound smoked, fully-cooked ham half
  • whole cloves
  • 10-ounce jar of peach preserves
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
Preheat oven to 325°F.

Remove skin from ham. Score fat on ham in a diamond design, and stud with whole cloves. Combine preserves, lemon juice, cinnamon and cloves in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Set aside.

Place ham, fat side up, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Insert meat thermometer, making sure it does not touch fat or bone. Bake, uncovered, for 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until thermometer reads 140°F (18 to 24 minutes per pound); baste every 15 to 20 minutes with the sauce.

Serves 8 to 10 people with leftovers.

Note: Ordinary peach preserves make a delicious glaze but, if you want to add a little excitement, Habanero-Peach preserves will do the trick.

Habanero-Peach preserves are usually for sale online through Amazon. Also, atop your morning bagel and cream cheese, they give a whole new meaning to the term "hot breakfast."
