½ cup agave syrup
½ teaspoon ground cloves
½ cup orange juice
1 cup (about 6 ounces) mild Peppadew peppers, drained and patted dry
7-pound cooked, spiral-cut smoked bone-in ham
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a roasting pan with cooking spray.
In a blender, combine the agave, cloves, orange juice and Peppadews. Purée until smooth, then transfer to a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and cook until thickened, about 10 minutes.
Set the ham in the pan, then brush it with half of the glaze. Bake for 1 hour, brushing with additional glaze every 20 minutes. Let the ham rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
