Honey Mustard Glazed Ham

Honey Mustard Glazed Ham

Ingredients

  • ½ leg of cooked ham (approx. 4.5 Kg)
  • 24-28 whole cloves
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • ½ cup soft brown sugar
  • 5 Tblsps honey
  • 2 Tblsps Dijon mustard

Method

  • Preheat your Belling oven to 190°C in a conventional function, or 170°C fanned. Place ham in a large ovenproof dish or use a foil disposable roasting dish.
  • Using a sharp knife, remove the skin of the ham, leaving an even layer of fat. Score the fat on top and sides in a criss-cross 'diamond' pattern.
  • Place a clove in the centre of each diamond. Set aside.
  • Combine juice, sugar, honey and mustard in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until sugar has dissolved, then simmer for 15 minutes or until glaze has thickened, stirring occasionally.
  • Gently brush ham with the glaze and cook for 30 minutes, basting at least twice more while cooking. Repeat a couple of times until the glaze begins to caramelise and brown.
  • Remove the ham from the oven and let it stand for 10 minutes before carving. Glaze ham again just prior to serving.
