To Peach His Own Glazed Ham


 


This ham recipe is one of my family’s favorite – we serve it at holiday time and it’s always a deceptively easy delight. After applying the glaze in layers before it cooks, the ham self-glazes and the layers combine to create its own sauce. Take it out of the oven and presto! You’re done.


Yield: 10-12 servings
Active Time: 10-15 minutes
Total Time: 75 minutes

Ingredients:
  • 3 pound baked ham
  • ⅓ cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar (packed)
  • ½ cup To Peach His Own
Preparation:
  1. Heat oven to 325°.
  2. Cut two sheets of aluminum foil each four times the width of the ham. Place on work surface so centers intersect, forming a cross shape.
  3. Score ham; cover outside of ham in mustard. Pat brown sugar over mustard forming a second layer. Pour To Peach His Own over top of ham – no need to spread over jam, it will natural flow down.
  4. Pull up sides of top layer of foil; bring both ends together and fold over to create a rolled over seam of about 3/4 inch. Keep rolling over seam until foil seam reaches on top of ham. Repeat same as above for bottom layer of foil, completely encasing the ham.
  5. Set wrapped ham on a baking pan and place in oven. Cook 18 minutes for every pound of ham.
  6. When done baking, let ham rest, still wrapped in foil, 10-15 minutes. Carefully unwrap ham, reserving sauce that has gathered at bottom of foil. Pour sauce from foil into bowl and skim off fat; serve alongside ham.
