Number of serving: 8
7 kg cooked leg ham

1 cup honey

1/2 cup orange juice

1 tablespoon Maille dijon mustard

whole cloves, to decorate


  • Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Cut through ham rind 8cm from shank. Run thumb underneath rind to separate from fat. Peel back and remove rind.
  • Finely grate rind of 1 orange. Place honey, orange juice, mustard and 2 teaspoons orange rind in a microwave-safe bowl.
  • Microwave on medium-high (75%) for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking, or until honey has melted. Brush one-third of honey mixture over ham.
  • Using a small sharp knife, peel skin and pith from oranges (use 5 oranges). Thinly slice. Arrange orange slices, overlapping slightly, over ham. Press a clove through the centre of each slice to secure.
  • Place ham on a wire rack in a large roasting pan. Drizzle half the remaining honey mixture over oranges. Cover shank end with foil to prevent it burning.
  • Bake, using a pastry brush to baste with remaining honey mixture every 15 minutes, for 50 minutes to 1 hour or until edges of orange slices start to caramelise.
  • Serve.
