Today, I'm sharing another brunch classic, baked ham. It seems like every other baked ham recipes involves maple syrup and/or honey. I love ham with honey, but it does get old. When I saw this recipe on Betty Crocker's website, it seemed obvious to me how well the flavors of peach and ham would go to together.
It starts with half a baked ham. The ham is already cooked, so the baking process is mostly just to warm the ham and coat it with glaze. You can scale the glaze recipe up or down depending on the size of ham you need. The smaller the ham, the shorter the cooking time.
The glaze is a delicious blend of Riesling (a highly aromatic, very crisp German white wine), peach preserves, fresh thyme, brown sugar and a bit of mustard. Don't skip the mustard, even if you don't generally like it. You can't taste it, but it adds a nice tang that balances the sweetness of the preserves and sugar.
This beautiful Riesling glazed ham will make an striking main course for any spring brunch, whether for Easter, Mother's Day, or just because. Pair any veggie side dishes or salads with its.
You don't need to use top-shelf Riesling for this recipe, but it should be one that you'd enjoy drinking on its own. I chose Cupcake Vineyards Riesling because one of its fruity notes is peach, along with hints of lemon and honeydew.
If you can't find sugar-free peach preserves, reduce the amount of brown sugar in your recipe to one quarter-cup plus two tablespoons.
