Ham and Peach Shish Kabobs with Peach Bourbon Glaze

Shish Kabobs are always fun and seem kinda fancy but this Ham and Peach Shish Kabob with Peach Bourbon Glaze comes together in no time and only cooks for about 6-8 minutes. I used a ham steak and didn't bother to peel the peaches-this is super easy folks!

The kabobs are pretty straight forward so my notes are about the glaze:
  • If you don't want to add the Bourbon, don't. Simply put your jam in the microwave for a few seconds to melt it a bit so it can be brushed on the kabobs.
  • I wish I had followed my instinct and added some spices to the glaze... I really like nutmeg with peaches, but cinnamon would be good too. 
  • If your jam/preserves are chunky you might want to give them a whirl in the food chopper.

I've been looking for metal skewers and found some nice ones at Walmart. They are stainless steel, $1.97 a pack and are folded into a V shape to help keep food from spinning when you turn them.
  I've used them a couple times now and so far I really like them!

Ham and Peach Kabobs with Peach Bourbon Glaze-Glaze from Epicurious
Ham, Onion and Bell Pepper cut into bite size pieces, about 1"
Peaches, cut into bite size pieces-I cut them into 4ths and then cross wise-8 pieces per peach

1/2 C peach jam/preserves
2 tsp Bourbon
I'd add a few hearty grates of fresh nutmeg or a shake of cinnamon
-Mix well
  1. Thread ham, onion, peppers and peaches onto skewers. Make sure you soak wooden skewers for at least 30 minutes in water.
  2. I gave them a quick spritz of vegetable oil before placing on the grill.
  3. Grill kabobs over medium hot heat for about 6-8 minutes. Watch them and turn to a different side as they begin to char. 
  4. Brush with the glaze during the last couple minutes.
Fire up the grill and have a happy day:@)

  1. This looks just delicious! We happen to be grilling a shish-kabob with peaches this evening. It's a recipe that I got from Singing With Birds with chicken. I will definitely be pinning this page to try the others. The ham and peach one sound like something we would love around here.

  2. That kabob looked so good with the peaches and ham - another good idea. sandie

  3. Wow, the peach glaze sounds wonderful! I think we need to grill some kebabs this week!

  4. Oh, my!!! You had me @ peach bourbon glaze! Wow, I want to try to make this next week!


  5. Another great kabob recipe from your kitchen, Lynn. I'm glad you found some stainless steel skewers, too.

  6. The peach and little bit of bourbon has to be a tasty combo! Don't tell Earl, but I'm betting it would be great on pork tenderloin too :) Enjoy your Sunday Lynn!

  7. The cilantro lime chicken made my mouth water. Great idea to use this week!

  8. Yum! I'd much rather have this than a hamburger or hotdog July 4.

  9. Anything on a skewer instantly becomes more fun! I've never tried grilling ham, but love grilled peaches. Thanks for the idea!
