Very Easy


Number of serving: 8
3 kg semi-boneless picnic shoulder ham

3/4 cup orange marmalade

2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

2 tablespoons orange juice


  • Place oven shelf in lowest position. Preheat oven to 170°C. Line a large roasting pan with 2 sheets of baking paper. Using a small sharp knife, cut through ham rind in a zig zag pattern.
  • Remove and discard rind. Score the fat in a 5mm-deep diamond pattern (see note). Place ham in prepared pan.
  • Combine marmalade, syrup and orange juice in a saucepan over low heat. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium.
  • Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until thickened. Brush half of the marmalade mixture over ham.
  • Cook for 1 hour and 20 minutes or until golden, brushing with remaining marmalade mixture every 20 minutes (mixture may need to be re-heated during this stage).
  • Serve ham warm or cold.


Be careful not to score the fat too deeply, otherwise fat will melt and spread during cooking.
