1 cured ham, bone-in (3 to 6 pounds)         
1 pound brown sugar                    
2 12-ounce cans whole peaches in sweet syrup

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place the ham in a roasting pan and score it with a knife to make a checkered pattern. Rub the ham with brown sugar. Pour the peaches and their juice over the ham, wetting the brown sugar. Rub the peach juice into the brown sugar to form a paste that covers the ham. Scatter the peaches on the bottom of the roasting pan and place in oven. Cook for 45 minutes, basting the ham every 10 minutes until it’s golden brown. Keep the cooked ham under tin foil in a warm place until ready to serve. Don’t forget to spoon the caramelized peaches and collected juices from the roasting pan on top of the sliced ham. (My kids love it!) Serves 6 to 8.
