A simple, two-ingredient glaze makes this baked ham a snap to prepare and bake, and the contrast of the sweet glaze with the salty ham is classic. Serve the ham with pineapple slices or a pineapple casserole. Scalloped potatoes and corn casserole are both wonderful side dishes that go with ham. Or, you can choose greens, fried okra, or your family's personal favorites.


  • 1 large ham, ready to cook, about 10 to 12 pounds
  • 1 cup peach preserves or peach jam
  • 2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard

Steps to Make It

  1. Heat oven to 350 F.

  2. Place the ham on a rack in a large baking pan or roasting pan with the fat side up. Score the ham lightly all over with a sharp knife, making a diamond pattern. Add 1 1/2 cups of water to the pan and cover the whole pan tightly with heavy-duty foil.

  3. Bake the ham for about 18 minutes per pound, or to an internal temperature of 148 F.

  4. Meanwhile, combine the preserves and mustard in a bowl, whisking to blend thoroughly.

  5. About 15 to 20 minutes before the ham is done, brush the ham all over with the glaze mixture.

This ham serves 8, with leftovers. For an extra kick, add 2 tablespoons of peach liqueur (Schnapps), 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and a dash of cinnamon to this recipe. Use the meaty leftover ham bone to make a pea soup, your New Year's Day black-eyed peas, or use the meat in a casserole, quiche, or breakfast dish.
