"I always cook ham longer than called for in most recipes. This one, I put the ham in crock pot before bed. I put the glaze on in the morning and by Easter lunch, It was perfect! I used the peach preserves and added the pepper. When I was mixing it, I thought maybe the pepper was a mistake, as it smelled and tasted strong. But after cooking, it was not as noticeable."

"Great tasting ham that is both simple and versatile. Since I have loads of homemade apricot preserves from our apricots this year, used that in place of peach preserve. Ham is one of only main course items I like both sweet and savory. Thanks for sharing."

"This is such a delicious glaze! I can't wait to use this sauce with Pork Tenderloin, Chicken, and Shrimp! It's a perfect blend of sweet, and spice! I did use orange marmalade in place of the peach. I also substituted Cayenne Pepper Sauce for the Ancho Chili Pepper. Great recipe!"
