The holiday season is fast approaching and if you are like me you are starting to decide what recipes you’re going to cook. Ham is on my mind today and after having a flick around the internet I found an ideal recipe for honey-glazed ham YUM YUM.
- 100g (1/2 cup, firmly packed) brown sugar
- 80ml (1/3 cup) maple syrup
- 80ml (1/3 cup) honey
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 (about 8kg) whole leg ham, on the bone
- Whole cloves, to stud
- Step 1
Stir the sugar, maple syrup, honey and mustard in a bowl until the sugar dissolves.
- Step 2
Preheat oven to 170C. Line a large baking dish with 2 layers of non-stick baking paper. Place an oven shelf in the lowest position. Remove all other shelves. Use a sharp knife to cut around the shank of the ham, about 10cm from the end. Run a knife under the rind around edge of ham. Gently lift the rind off in 1 piece by running your fingers between the rind and the fat. Score the fat in a diamond pattern, about 5mm deep. Stud the centres of the diamonds with cloves. Transfer to prepared dish.
- Step 3
Brush one-third of the glaze over the ham. Bake, brushing with glaze every 25 minutes, for 1 hour 30 minutes.
