Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Using a sharp knife, remove the rind from the ham, leaving a layer of fat all around that is at least 1/4 inch thick. Deeply score the fat in a crosshatch pattern at 1/2-inch intervals. Transfer the ham to a large roasting pan and scatter the lemon and onion slices around it. Add the chicken stock or broth to the roasting pan.

In a food processor, combine the lemon-lime marmalade,PEPPADEW® peppers, mustard, lemon juice and bourbon, and process into a coarse puree. Brush the top of the ham with 2 tablespoons of the lemon-and-PEPPADEW®-pepper glaze. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour. Remove the foil. Brush the ham with a scant 1/2 cup of the glaze and bake for 1 hour. Brush with another scant 1/2 cup of the glaze and bake until the ham is browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the meat registers 155 degrees F, about 30 minutes longer.

Transfer the ham to a cutting board. Strain the pan juices into a large glass measuring cup and skim off the fat. Transfer the juices to a medium saucepan, and boil until reduced to 2 1/2 cups, about 5 minutes. Whisk the cornstarch slurry, and add it to the juices in the saucepan along with the remaining 1/2 cup of glaze. Simmer over moderately high heat, stirring, until thickened, about 3 minutes. Slice the ham and serve with the sauce.
