Baked Ham with Peach Glaze is an inspiration. No pineapple? No problem. Make this simple peach glaze to top your ham. It’s scrumptious!
Don here. Necessity is the mother of invention, they say. We had a lovely Spiral Cut Ham ready to bake. 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!
What You Need
You will need some measuring cups and spoons, a small saucepan, wire whisk, Dutch oven or roaster, and some toothpicks. Treat yourself right, and buy yourself a good set of pans. You’ll never be sorry.
Baked Ham with Peach Glaze Recipe
Baked Ham with Peach Glaze
Salty and sweet, delicious ham
- 8 pound spiral cut ham
- 1 15-oz can of sliced peaches in light syrup
- 1-2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 tablespoon whole cloves
Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
- 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 to the peach juice. Whisk to combine. (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 the glaze aside.
Place the peach slices on top of 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.
Cook's 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 for this recipe. You would adjust the cooking time accordingly, baking 15 minutes per pound.
