Caribbean Passion Guava Pepper Jelly Picnic Ham

Prep Time15 minutes
Cook Time10 minutes


  • 1 Caribbean Passion Picnic Ham

For the glaze

  • 5 large guavas pureed
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 scotch bonnet peppers sliced
  • 1 tbsp lime juice


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and remove ham from the packaging.
  • Wrap ham in several layers of foil and place in a baking dish.
  • Fill the baking dish with water and place ham in the oven to warm thoroughly, 10 mins per pound.
  • Wash and dice guava into cubes, add them to a pot with water, and cook until tender (approx. 20 mins).
  • Once they are cooked, blend or mash with a potato masher, and strain the contents to remove the seeds.
  • In a saucepan, combine guava puree, scotch bonnet pepper, lime juice, and sugar.
  • Cook for 5-10 mins over medium heat until thick and rich, remove the peppers.
  • Remove ham from oven, discard water, and remove foil.
  • Using a sharp knife, remove the skin, carve excess fat, and score to allow jam penetration.
  • Spread half of the guava jelly all over the ham.
  • Place ham in oven at 450°F, continually basting for 10-15 minutes or until ham is sticky and golden.
  • Remove from oven, allow to rest before carving.
  • Pour the remaining jam/jelly into a dish and serve alongside the ham.
