Peach Glazed Ham

This is an award winning recipe for traditional Easter ham.


16 to 20 servings


1 bone-in fully cooked ham (8 to 10 pounds)
whole cloves
1 (12 ounce) can lemon-lime soda
1 1/2 cups packed dark brown sugar, divided
1 cup water
1 (12 ounce) jar peach preserves
6 tablespoons butter, cubed
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
1 teaspoon Liquid Smoke, optional
dash ground cloves
1 (8 ounce) can sliced pineapple, drained
3 canned peach halves


Preheat oven to 325°F (163°C). Score surface of the ham, making diamond shapes 1/2 inch deep; insert a clove into each diamond. Place on a rack in a well-greased foil-lined roasting pan. Pour soda over ham. Spread 1 cup brown sugar over ham. Add water to pan.

Cover and bake in the preheated oven for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

In a large saucepan, combine the preserves, butter, honey, mustard, Liquid Smoke if desired, ground cloves and remaining brown sugar. Cook and stir over low heat until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved. Uncover ham; brush with glaze.

Arrange the pineapple slices and peach halves over ham, securing with wooden toothpicks.

Bake, uncovered, for 25 to 30 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 140°F (60°C) and ham is heated through. Discard toothpicks before carving.
