Glazed Ham Recipes

Ingredients :


leg ham cloves, to garnish glaze of your choice

Method :
  1. Preheat the oven to moderate 180C (350F/ Gas 4).
  2. Using a very sharp knife, cut through the rind 6cm from the shank end of the ham.
  3. To remove the rind, run a thumb around the edge, under the rind, and carefully pull it back.
  4. Cut away and discard some of the excess fat from the ham.
  5. Using a sharp knife, carefully score the fat with evenly spaced cuts crossways and then diagonally to form a diamond pattern.
  6. Do not cut all the way through the fat to the ham below, or the fat will fall off during cooking.
  7. Press a clove into the centre of each scored diamond then carefully spread your preferred glaze over the ham with a palette knife or the back of a spoon.
  8. Place the ham on a rack in a large, deep roasting tin.
  9. Add 2 cups water to the tin, cover the ham and tin securely with foil, and cook in the oven for 45 minutes.
  10. Remove the ham from the oven and take off the foil.
  11. Increase the temperature to hot 210C (415F/ Gas 6-7).
  12. Return the ham to the oven and bake for a further 20 minutes, or until the surface of the ham is slightly caramelized.
  13. Allow the ham to rest for 15 minutes before carving.
