A simple glaze over ham makes an easy, special occasion meal.
1 (10-pound) ham
2 tablespoons whole cloves
1 (32-ounce) can peaches in syrup
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1 cup honey
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- Remove the rind and score the fat on a ham. Stud with whole cloves then place in a roasting pan.
- Drain peaches in syrup; reserving the syrup.
- Combine the syrup with cider vinegar. Mix well, then spoon over the ham. Cover with aluminum foil.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 325°F (160°C) for 3 hours, or until the ham is almost tender, basting frequently with the pan juices.
- Spread honey over the ham and sprinkle with brown sugar. Arrange the peaches around the ham and bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes more, or until the ham is glazed.
Makes 12 servings.
*Note: Directions are for a bone-in, fully cooked ham. Also called “ready-to-eat” or “heat-and-serve” ham. A “cook-before-eating” ham must be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F (70°C), approximately 18 to 20 minutes per pound.
