Honey Mustard Glazed Ham

Honey Mustard Glazed Ham


7kg leg of ham on the bone

Whole cloves

85g (1/3 Cup) Dijon mustard

125ml (1/2 cup) honey

45g (1/4 cup, lightly packed) brown sugar

250ml (1 cup) apple juice

250ml (1 cup) dry sherry


  1. Preheat oven to 160°C.
  2. Place an oven shelf in the lowest position and remove all other shelves.
  3. Use a small, sharp knife to cut around the shank of the ham in a zigzag pattern, about 10cm from the end.
  4. Run a knife under the rind around the edge of the ham.
  5. Gently lift the rind off in one piece by running your fingers between the rind and the fat.
  6. Use a knife to score the fat in a diamond pattern, 1cm deep.
  7. Stud the corners of the diamonds with cloves.
  8. Use a pastry brush to brush the mustard all over the ham.
  9. Bake in oven for 20 minutes or until the ham starts to brown.
  10. Combine the honey, sugar, sherry and apple juice in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  11. Cook, stirring for 2-3 minutes or until the honey and sugar melt. Gently pour over the ham.
  12. Bake, basting occasionally with the pan juices, for 1 hour or until golden brown. Transfer the ham to a serving platter and serve.
