I highly recommend buying a spiral cut smoked ham. The smokey flavors really enhance the taste of this spiral ham recipe and work so well with the sweet and tangy Riesling peach glaze.
How to Make Riesling Peach Glaze
- Start by placing a medium saucepan on your stove. Add the Riesling wine, fresh thyme, and shallot to the saucepan and heat to boiling over medium-high heat.
- Reduce the heat and simmer until the Riesling has reduced by half. Remove the thyme sprigs with a slotted spoon or set of tongs and discard.
- Stir in the peach preserves, brown sugar, and ground mustard, then brush half of the glaze mixture on the ham before cooking. (You’ll add more glaze as the ham cooks.)
How to Cook Ham
- First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line a roasting pan with foil.
- Next, place the ham on the rack in the roasting pan. Place an ovenproof meat thermometer in the thickest portion of the ham.
- Brush the ham with half of the Riesling peach glaze and bake it uncovered for an hour and a half, basting the spiral ham with more glaze every half hour.
- After the ham has baked for 90 minutes, loosely cover it with foil and bake it for another 30 minutes or until your meat thermometer reads 140 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Remove the ham from the oven, then let it rest for 15 to 20 minutes.
- Slice, serve, and enjoy!
