Glazed Roast Christmas Ham

Prepare one of these simple yet delicious glaze recipes for Christmas, each with a different flavour to suit your preference.

Ingredients

Blood orange marmalade, ginger and siracha glaze

300g jar blood orange marmalade (regular is also fine)
1/4 brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons of freshly grated ginger
1 tablespoon of siracha hot sauce

Spiced redcurrant and pomegranate glaze

1 cup redcurrant jelly
1/3 cup pomegranate molasses
2 cinnamon sticks
4 star anise
2 cloves

Beer, brown sugar and mustard glaze

375ml dark ale
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon golden syrup

Method

  1. Combine glaze ingredients in a medium saucepan, stirring and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer stirring occasionaly for 8 minutes or until slightly thickened. (Beer, brown sugar and mustard glaze requires a further 20 mins simmering or until reduced volume by half).
  2. Using a knife, pull back and remove the rind from the ham. Score the ham fat (not flesh).
  3. Brush the ham fat 2-3 times with the glaze. Place the on a greased rack in a large baking dish lined with foil.
  4. Bake the ham in a preheated oven (180°C/160°C fan forced) for 50 mins – 1hr (35 – 45 mins for a half leg). Re-baste the ham every 10 – 15 mins with the remaining glaze or until ham is golden and caramelised. Set aside to cool before serving.

Tips:

  • Wrap the ham hock in foil, this prevents it from burning.
  • For ease, use a large disposable foil roasting dish.
  • Keep the glaze on very low heat while standing, this will make sure it spreads easily over the ham when you apply the baste.
