Peach Glazed Ham Recipe may quite possibly be my favorite treatment for ham- ever. Sweet and tangy, this glaze forms the best crunchy exterior for a shank or spiral sliced ham.
Can you say ‘The Perfect Easter Ham Recipe’?
The ingredient list is 4 items long, and it only takes 5 minutes to prepare! I love making easy recipes during the holidays (well, all the time, actually). It gives me more time to prep side dishes or doing other chores that need to be done.
I made the recipe as stated, because no substitutions are needed. I used a spiral sliced ham though because Meijer had some great ones on sale. Honestly, I prefer a shank portion spiral sliced ham for ease of serving. Plus, I like how the glaze seeps between all of the layers!
The recipe calls for prepared peach jam and I use a store bought version. If you have a favorite homemade peach jam recipe, by all means, use it.
Don’t forget to make something special for dessert. Staying with the peach theme, you could make Blueberry-Peach Honey Wine Galette.
I hope you love this peach glazed ham as much as I do!
