Courtesy of Otway Pork, we have been passed the secret recipe for the best glazed Christmas Ham! *Mouth currently watering*.


RECIPE: GLAZED CHRISTMAS HAM


Ingredients:

  • Otway Pork ham on the bone

  • 1/2 jar orange marmalade

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

  • 1/2 cup dijon mustard

  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar


Method:

  1. Mix all of the glaze ingredients into a thick paste.

  2. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius, and line a large baking tray with baking paper.

  3. Carefully remove the skin from the ham using a small blade knife, avoiding removing any of the fat layer. Using a sharp knife, gently score the fat by cutting it in a crisscross pattern to form even diamonds and avoiding cutting the meat underneath. Brush with a third of the glaze.

  4. Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.

  5. Remove the ham from the oven and brush with another third of the glaze. Return to oven and bake for 10 minutes. (note: If the ham glaze colouring is uneven turn the dish around, in case there are hot areas in your oven).

  6. Remove ham from the oven and brush on the remaining glaze. Bake for a further 10 minutes, or until light golden brown all over.
