Classic Christmas Glazed Ham


1 cup orange marmalade

1/4 cup honey

1/2 cup orange juice

4-5kg ham leg



Preheat the oven to 200C.

Place the orange marmalade, honey and orange juice in a saucepan over high heat and whisk to combine. Bring to the boil and cook for 6 minutes until thickened. Set aside to cool slightly.

Using a small, sharp knife cut around the shank of the ham, then gently using your fingers, remove the skin from the ham, leaving the fat layer. Score the ham fat in a diamond pattern and cover the hock with aluminium foil.

Place the ham on a wire rack in a baking dish lined with non-stick baking paper. Push a clove into each diamond and brush with the glaze. Cook for 40–50 minutes, brushing with the glaze every 10 minutes, until the ham is golden and caramelised.
