Interesting taste to this! I would never have thought of spreading peanut butter on ham, but hey...I liked the glaze of brown sugar, etc, very much. Anyway, I tried this as it sounded interesring and easy, and I had all the ingredients on hand. A unique way to bake ham! :)

This was quite different for a way to serve ham. It's not too bad, but I have to say I probably won't make this again, or if I do I may make some adjustments on it. Maybe mix it all the ingredients together and cut down on the amount of peanut butter. It just seemed like the peanut butter was too thick in places.
