Ham with Peach Glaze Recipe

Ham with Peach Glaze Recipe

Tender slices of this fruit-glazed ham are on our family's Christmas menu every year. Topping the meat with pineapple slices, cherries and cloves makes it look festive--and adds to the flavor of this easy holiday entree. -Christine Eilerts Tulsa, Oklahoma
