Peach Bourbon Ham

Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Cook Time Per Pound 10 mins

Ingredients
  

  • 1 Caribbean Passion bone-in leg ham (or your favourite ham)
  • 1 cup peach schnapps (peach liquor) 
  • 2 cups bourbon
  • 1 ½ cup brown sugar
  • 6 peaches, sliced

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Remove all the packaging and nets from the ham.
  • Wrap the ham in several layers of foil and place in a baking pan. Fill the baking dish with water.
  • Place ham in the oven to warm, 10 mins per pound (6-8 mins for a boneless ham).
  • In a saucepan combine, half the sliced peaches, peach schnapps, bourbon, and brown sugar.
  • Boil until it becomes a light syrup. When the peaches are tender, mash with a potato masher or fork.
  • Remove ham from oven, discard water and remove foil. Peel away the skin and carve off the desired amount of fat.
  • Using a sharp knife, score the fat of the ham diagonally. Pour the peach bourbon syrup over the ham.
  • Add the remaining peach slices in the pan to cook with the ham.
  • Increase oven temperature to 475°F – 500°F. Add the ham, occasionally basting until golden and caramelized.
  • Reserve the sauce in the bottom of the pan and the caramelized peach slices for serving. 
  • Allow the ham to rest before carving.

Tip

  • Add a few tbsp of peach schnaps to the finished sauce for a burst of peach flavour.
