Five ingredients easily become a fruity, spiced glaze for ham. My family enjoys the entree so much, I serve it at both Christmas and Easter. —Christine Eiberts, Tulsa, Oklahoma

  • 1 can (8-1/2 ounces) sliced peaches in heavy syrup
  • 1 fully cooked bone-in ham (6 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon whole cloves
  • 1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves


  1. 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.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, vinegar, cloves and reserved syrup.
  3. Brush ham with 1/2 cup brown sugar mixture. Bake, uncovered, 25-35 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 140°. Let stand for 15 minutes before slicing. Serve with remaining brown sugar mixture.
