    My family loved it last Christmas and have decided to have it again this Christmas.
    I discovered this recipe about 5 years ago and it is always a huge hit with everyone in the family. I get requests to bring the ham every Thanksgiving and there is never any leftover. The ham is full of flavor and never dry. I should also mention my family likes bland food but loves the flavor of this ham.
    This was the best ham I have ever eaten! So moist!! My family couldn't stop eaten it!! Definitely a keeper!!!
    This was the first recipe of the Neely's that I made and it was also the first time I hosted Christmas Eve for 20+ people. I wanted to make something fairly simple so I wouldn't be in the kitchen the whole time and not talking to my guests. This worked out very well! I followed the directions, I just used frozen peaches and I omitted the ginger (I have never been a fan of ginger. I was also sure to glaze it every 15 minutes like it called for. I had an uncle here who is a "ham enthusiast" haha and said it was one of the best hams he ever had. And then I had my Dad here who isn't a huge fan of ham, but said it was delcious. What he really enjoyed was we made a sauce out of the left over juices. It had a peachy-mustardy taste to it that everyone seemed to enjoy. Will keep this recipe for future get togethers.
    This is the best ham ever.....been making it for the last 3 Thanksgivings and everyone loves it because there is never any leftovers for ham sandwhiches the next day. Lol!
    I made this recipe for the first time 2 years ago and it a hit. My family loves it. Super easy recipe to follow and the ingredients were reasonably priced. I make this every year now for Christmas.
    I made this for Easter Sunday and the whole family loved it. Many thought it was the best glazed ham they had ever tasted. I'm looking forward to the leftovers and making some tasty sandwiches!
    Not too bad, it was definitely a hit with my guests. I miss having a bit more sweetness to it though.
    Another Hit recipe to add to 'The Classics'. It stayed juicy and moist, not dried out like a smoked-to-death one. Hmm-hmm
    Turned out awesome. So easy to do.
    I tried this recipe for my Thanksgiving party and not only was it easy,it was an absolute hit! My family loved it!
    My boyfriend and I made Peach Glazed Ham last night and it was absolutely wonderful. That is a recipe that will be used over again. Loved It!!!
    This was the first ham I ever cooked and it was AMAZING. My local supermarket didnt have ginger, so I skipped it. I will make again and again!
    Best ham ever...even beats out Paula Dean's Cola ham. Although I still like yours too Paula. I forgot to strain out the ginger and garlic but it didn't negatively affect the end result. Canned peaches worked fine too. Skim off the fat after refrigerating the sauce and peaches...makes a great sauce for the leftovers. Yuuuummm. The Neeley's knocked this one out of the ballpark!
    Made this ham for Easter dinner and it was a big hit! I made a glaze using peach preserves & peach jam and reduced with the fresh ginger per the recipe. The dijon mustard and brown sugar made a beautiful crust, which was perfect for basting the glaze. Easy to make and delicious.
    This was delicious! This is the first ham I have ever attempted. I made it just as directed and used the glaze in the pan as a side sauce. I will definitely do this one again :)
    I am planning on making this for Easter . All the reviews sound great. Just want to be sure that it is not going to be too sweet. And also can you use the juice from canned peaches as the nectar? Or do you recommend trying to find the peach nectar?
    This recipe was fantastic! I did not cover the ham, Quinn. Also to cookingmamastl---if you ever find yourself without peach nectar again, just make it. We used two large cans of peaches (you could use equivalent fresh in juice, about a cup of sugar, and a cup of water. Put it all in a pot and reduce. Eventually you'll blend and put through a fine mesh strainer. Put it back in the pot and reduce some more until thick and syrupy. Once off of the heat, add a t of vanilla extract. Works like a charm. I liked the fresh peach taste for the whole peaches, but canned work well for the nectar.
    Should the ham be covered with aluminum foil during that 1.5 hours? It doesn't say to cover it first so I wasn't sure. I'm want to make this for Easter.
    I have made this several times. Once when I couldn't find the nectar I substituted peach preserves or marmalade. It was still good but I like it better with the nectar.
    Just as I thought it would be,,,,,,waiting on our invitation!!!!!!
    Absolutely delicious! The sweet flavor complemented the saltiness of the ham. I didn't use any peaches but used the nectar and basted the ham every 20 minutes. I'll be using this recipe to cook ham from now on. It's easy to prepare with minimal ingredients and it tastes great.
    Yet another simple recipe that will yield amazing flavor. This time around I used canned peaches since my local store didn't have fresh ones today. A co worker said this time the peaches were even better vs the fresh ones, but I don't know how to pick peaches for the sweetest flavor so they probably didn't have any flavor. If you have left overs, cut up the ham and keep it soaked in sauce for the next day and it just soaks it up. If your peaches are still warm and have room for desert, drop a few slices over a bowl of vanilla ice cream.
    This was my first time cooking a ham and I could not have picked a better recipe. The peach flavor was subtle and there was a perfect amount of sweetness to the ham. I saw this receipe on one of the Neely's shows after Christmas and my mouth was watering. I knew it would be perfect for my new year's dinner and I was so right! OMG, it was so good! This is officially my family ham recipe.
    Best ham ever, and I've eaten a ton of ham! That peach glaze with the salty ham is heaven. Put that on a warm slice of buttered home made white bread, oh buddy! The best thing about ham is the left overs. Grilled ham and cheese sandwiches, ham and cheese omelets, ham and beans. It's all good. Keep making me smile you two. Too bad some of that love doesn't rub off on the ignorant haters.
    This is an excellent. I started making this for the holidays last year. and now my family will have it no other way. Go Pat, Go Gina!
    My sister in law made this recipe and it was absolutely delicious and different! I am trying this recipe out for Christmas for my side of the family to try!
    This the best glaze I have ever had! I make it for Easter and everyone said it was the best they have ever had too!
    This is the only way I am allowed to make ham in my house. My family loved it. Peach nectar can be hard to find in my town, sometimes I subsititue the peach nectar and puree peaches. Thanks Pat and Gina.
