For cherry glaze, in a small saucepan, combine preserves, orange juice, and jalapeño peppers. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until bubbly. Remove from heat. Place mixture in a food processor and process until smooth. 2. Place ham, fat side up, on rack in a shallow roasting pan. Brush with some of the glaze. Cover ham loosely with foil. Bake for 1 hour, brushing occasionally with glaze. 3. Increase oven temperature to 425°F. Remove foil and spoon any remaining glaze over top and sides of ham. Bake 10 minutes more or until thermometer inserted near center, not touching bone, registers 140°F. Transfer ham to cutting board. Loosely cover with foil; let stand 10 minutes. 4. While ham is roasting, prepare compote. In a large saucepan, combine cherries, tart apple, broth, syrup, and vinegar. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Boil gently 30 minutes or until reduced to 2 cups. Remove from heat. Place mixture in food processor. Cover and pulse until a thick, saucelike consistency. Stir in chopped sweet apples. 5. To serve, cut sliced ham from bone. Transfer slices to serving platter. Top with a few spoonfuls of compote and garnish with thyme. Serve remaining compote with ham. *Note: Chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes. When working with jalapeños, wear protective gloves.
