Peach Glazed Ham Recipe may quite possibly be my favorite treatment for ham- ever. Sweet and tangy, this glaze forms the best crunchy exterior for a shank or spiral sliced ham. The ingredient list is 4 items long, and it only takes 5 minutes to prepare! I love making easy recipes during the holidays (well, all the time, actually). It gives me more time to prep side dishes or doing other chores that need to be done.

  • 1 fully cooked, bone in shank end ham (about 9 lbs)
  • ½ C peach preserves
  • ¼ C Dijon mustard
  • ¼ C dark brown sugar, packed
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  1. Place ham on a large platter and bring to room temperature.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  3. Remove skin and all but a ¼ inch layer of fat from the ham.
  4. Set fat side up in center of roasting pan.
  5. In a small bowl, combine preserves, mustard, sugar and vanilla until thoroughly combined.
  6. Brush half of peach mixture on ham.
  7. Cover loosely with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  8. Remove foil and brush on remaining peach mixture.
  9. Bake, uncovered, until internal temperature on a thermometer reaches 140 degrees (1½ hours) and basting every 15-20 minutes.
  10. If bottom of roasting pan begins to scorch add about ¼ C of water to pan and continue basting.
