Peach-Glazed Ham Recipe

This recipe for our family's traditional Easter ham is my own creation. It truly is a winner and even took first place in a local recipe contest.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 1 hour 55 min. YIELD:16-20 servings


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


  • 1. Score surface of the ham, making diamond shapes 1/2 in. 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 at 325° for 1-1/2 to 2 hours.
  • 2. 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.
  • 3. Arrange the pineapple slices and peach halves over ham, securing with wooden toothpicks. Bake, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 140° and ham is heated through. Discard toothpicks before carving. Yield: 16-20 servings.

"I made this last year for our troops on Thanksgiving day. It was such a hit that I was asked to make it again and share the recipe! I of course referred them to ToH's website. We fed close to 50 soldiers not including family members. There were a total of 10 turkeys, 2 hams, many sides and desserts! We are doing it again this year too. God bless our troops and their families, we are very thankful for you! I rate this 5 stars..."
