To taste freshly ground black pepper
1. Cut each peach into eight wedges; set aside. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the yogurt, honey, lime juice and mint. Season with a pinch of salt and check for a nice balance of sweet and sour (add more lime if necessary). Set aside.
2. Arrange slices of ham on six plates. Divide peach slices between the six plates and drizzle with some of the sour cream mixture.
