Honey, Orange & Clove Glaze

Glaze for ½ leg ham

What You Will Need

  • 200 ml Manuka Honey
  • 3 oranges, julienne rind and juice only
  • 2 teaspoons powdered mustard
  • 1 teaspoons cloves, plus extra for studding
  • Coburg Smoke House Ham on the Bone half

Directions

  1. Heat honey in a saucepan over medium heat for 5 minutes or until dark golden, then add orange juice and rind, mustard and cloves and simmer for 10 minutes or until reduced by half. Cool to room temperature.
  2. Preheat oven to 180C. Remove skin from ham and discard. Score fat in a crisscross pattern, stud with remaining cloves in the centre of each diamond.
  3. Place ham on a rack in a large roasting pan. Half fill roasting pan with water and brush ham liberally with glaze.
  4. Roast, basting frequently with remaining glaze, for 1 hour, or until golden.
  5. If you are lucky enough to have any ham left after the big day, place into vinegar soaked linen cloth, ham bag or pillow case and store in the refrigerator.
