Recipe Idea: Baked Ham with Peach Glaze
Don here. Necessity is the mother of invention, they say. We had this lovely Spiral Cut Ham ready to bake and Lois and I were both certain there was a can of pineapple slices in the pantry. The mind is an uncertain organ sometimes and the pineapple was nowhere to be found. But we did have a can of peach slices. Sweet and not as tart as pineapple but worth a try we thought—especially when we had good friends on their way to town for supper. Voila! Baked Ham with Peach Glaze.
Bottom line: It was delicious!
Note: I never get a ham less than 8 pounds so we can have several friends for supper and some left over for sandwiches and to have with eggs. But whatever size ham you have will work.
- 8 pound [url href=”https://amzn.to/1QyQDTV” target=”_blank”]spiral cut ham[/url]
- 1 15oz can of sliced peaches in light syrup
- 1 or 2 T brown sugar
- ½ t ground cinnamon
- ½ t ground cloves
- 1 T whole cloves
- Prepare the ham for baking according to the directions or your traditional method.
- Drain the liquid from the peaches into a small sauce pan.
- Add the brown sugar and spices.
- The amount of brown sugar can be adjusted to the sweetness you want in the glaze.
- Boil the mixture over medium high heat, stirring constantly, until it is reduced by half.
- Set aside.
- Place the peach slices on the ham.
- If they won’t stay where you want them, then secure them with tooth picks.
- Pour or spoon the reduced liquid over the ham.
- Bake the ham according to the instructions on the package. (For a pre-cooked 8-pound ham that’s 2 hours at 350F to warm it thoroughly.)
- To serve: slice the ham and place one or two slices on a plate.
- Top with a couple of peach slices.
- Serve with mustard sauce on the side.[br][url href=”https://recipeideashop.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/RIS_LOGO-22-e1436274250987.jpg”][img src=”https://recipeideashop.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/RIS_LOGO-22-e1436274250987.jpg” width=”300″ height=”62″ class=”alignleft size-full” title=”RIS_LOGO-2″][/url]
