Maple-Peach Glazed Ham

This is one of my husband's favorite recipes. He makes it regularly for his group of friends on the weekends because it's so good and easy. —Bonnie Hawkins, Elkhorn, Wisconsin

    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!
