LET'S GET COOKING!
Preheat oven to 325°F.

Place all ingredients of glaze in a saucepan and simmer on low for 10 minutes or until slightly thick adding more water if needed.
Uncover ham and baste the ham with glaze. Return to oven and continue baking until internal temperature reaches 145°F.*
Melt butter and brush butter over the peaches. Sprinkle sugar on top and bake in a hot 400°F oven until caramelized. Remove and sprinkle with black pepper.
