    • 2 teaspoons whole cloves
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 2 tablespoons brown mustard
    • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
    • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
    • 1 cup peach or apricot nectar

    1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C. Use a serrated knife to score the top of the ham in a diamond pattern. Press whole cloves into the ham and place on a baking tray.
    2. Bake for 1 1/2 to 2 hours in the preheated oven. Cover with aluminium foil if the ham starts to look dry.
    3. While the ham is baking mix together the cinnamon, mustard and 1/2 cup of brown sugar in a cup or small bowl. Set aside.
    4. In a saucepan over medium heat mix together the remaining brown sugar, cider vinegar, peach nectar and peach conserve. Bring to a boil and then stir in the sliced peaches, ginger, chilli and the cinnamon stick. Simmer until the peaches are tender and the sauce has thickened, 25 to 30 minutes.
    5. Remove the ham from the oven and brush liberally with the mustard glaze. Increase the oven temperature to 180 degrees C and return the ham to the oven, uncovered.
    6. Bake for an additional 20 to 30 minutes, or until glaze is bubbly. Allow the ham to rest for 15 to 20 minutes before carving. Serve with hot peach-ginger sauce.

    I was looking for something different from the usual sweet, glazed ham for Easter and this was perfect! I followed the recipe exactly, except for cooking times because I used a spiral-cut ham which didn't need to cook as long. Everyone LOVED it.  -  24 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made the Peach-Ginger sauce to go with grilled pork chops. Yum! I had been trying to find something similar to the Grace's Kitchen peach sauce (a line of very good frozen meals) and this is close, using white balsamic vinegar and twice as much ginger (which I love). I also didn't put the pepper in. So my rating is perhaps a bit skewed but I'm so pleased with the result that I'm giving it a 5! I think it would probably be very good as stated too.  -  15 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    the peach ginger sauce is so good. i am going to use this as a sauce for other dinners as well. if you have any problems finding hot cherry peppers, check out the 'italian' section of your supermarket. our supermarkets didn't have any whole peppers, but i found them sliced and marketed as 'hoagie spread' in the italian section. i had to go to a larger store that had plenty of selection to find it.  -  28 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
