One of our family favorites during the Holidays is a glazed ham, and not the store bought kind, not your Mama’s kind, the homemade can’t wait to eat kind. Put away the old recipe and try this refreshing and delicious glaze.
- 1 (5-6 lb.) fully cooked half ham
- 1 (18 oz.) jar peach preserves
- 1 cup Riesling wine
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup stone-ground mustard
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 sprigs fresh thyme
Preheat oven to 400º F and line a roasting pan with aluminum foil. Place ham on roasting rack inside roasting pan and use a sharp knife to score the outer layer of fat, tracing lines with your knife without cutting too deep into the meat.
In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, bring wine, thyme and garlic to a boil.
Reduce heat to low and let simmer until reduced to 2/3 cup.
Remove thyme sprigs and stir in peach preserves, sugar and mustard until smooth. Remove from heat.
Brush 1/2 of glaze over ham and bake for 1 hour 30 minutes, continuing to brush with remaining glaze every 30-35 minutes.
Tent aluminum foil over the ham and bake until thickest part of meat reaches 140º F.
Remove from oven and let rest 10-15 minutes, then slice and serve hot.
