Honey Glazed Ham

Honey Glazed Ham

Serves 20

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup Red Gum Honey
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 whole leg ham, on the bone (roughly 8kg)
  • Whole cloves (to stud)

 

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 170°c. Line a large roasting dish with baking paper. 
  2. Mix the sugar, Red Gum Honey and mustard in a bowl until the sugar dissolves.
  3. Using a small knife, cut around the ham rind, 10cm from shank end. Run a knife under the rind to separate it from the fat. Peel back and discard the rind.
  4. Score the fat in a diamond pattern about 5mm deep. Stud the cloves in the centres of the diamond. Place ham in roasting dish and wrap shank end with foil.
  5. Brush one-third of the glaze over the ham. Bake, brushing with glaze every 25 minutes, for approximately 1 hour 30 minutes.
