- 1 fully cooked bone-in ham (6 pounds)
- 1 tablespoon whole cloves

- Drain peaches, reserving syrup (save peaches for another use). Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Score the surface of the ham, making diamond shapes 1/2 in. deep; insert a clove in each diamond. Cover and bake at 325° for 2 hours.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, vinegar, cloves and reserved syrup.
- Brush ham with 1/2 cup brown sugar mixture. Bake, uncovered, 25-35 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 140°. Let stand for 15 minutes before slicing. Serve with remaining brown sugar mixture. Yield: 10 servings.
