Ingredients

Number of serving: 6
2.25 kg leg of ham

1/2 cup (170 g) orange marmalade

1 tablespoon fresh orange juice

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

2 cloves garlic, crushed

Salt and cracked black pepper

Whole cloves, to garnish

Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 180°C. Carefully remove the rind from the ham, making sure you don't trim off too much of the fat.
  • Use a small sharp knife to score the fat into a diamond pattern, about 5mm deep (take care not to cut all the way through to the meat or the fat may fall off during cooking).
  • Place the marmalade, orange juice, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper in a small saucepan over low heat and cook, stirring, until marmalade has melted and just starts to bubble, and the mixture is well combined.
  • Spread the glaze over the ham then place a clove in the middle of each diamond of fat.
  • Place the ham on a rack in a baking dish and fill with enough water to cover the base of the dish.
  • Cook for 25 minutes, brushing regularly with glaze mixture, until the surface of the ham is golden and caramelised.
  • Set aside for 15 minutes to rest, then slice and serve warm or cold.
