DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Put the ham in a shallow baking pan.
  • With a sharp knife, score the ham in a diamond design.
  • Add 1 cup of water to the bottom of the pan.
  • Cover pan securely with foil and bake for 1 hour.
  • Uncover the ham and brush with 1/2 cup of peach preserves.
  • Bake uncovered, 30 minutes longer, basting occasionally.
  • Meanwhile make the sauce: In a medium saucepan, combine the nectar, chicken broth and cornstarch and stir until smooth.
  • Add remaining 1/2 cup peach preserves and the brown sugar and bring to a boil, whisking occasionally.
  • Simmer the sauce until thickened.
  • Add the walnuts and peaches and simmer 1 minute longer.
