Perfect Glazed Christmas Ham

Ingredients
  • 5kg Free-range Leg Ham 
  • ½ cup Whisky Marmalade 
  • 2 tbs orange juice 
  • Whole cloves
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 170°c. Remove skin from ham and reserve. 
  2. Score fat in a diamond pattern with a sharp knife. Place ham on a rack in a large roasting pan. Pour 1 cup of water into pan. Bake for 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine marmalade and juice in a saucepan and stir over low heat until smooth. Brush ham well with glaze and push cloves into diamond ends. Bake for 30 minutes until golden. Brush with remaining glaze and return to oven for a further 15 minutes to caramelise. 
  4. Transfer ham to a platter. Slice and serve with salads. 

Tip

  1. Cover leftover ham on the bone inside the reserved skin. Then soak a pillowcase in water and vinegar. Place ham in pillowcase and keep in the fridge. 
  2. It’s not just for christmas day! A glazed ham is the perfect solution for summer entertaining – and everyone loves it.
