amazing glazed ham


amazing glazed ham
serves 10-12
1 whole leg of ham on the bone (approx 6kg / 12lb)
a small handful cloves
1 jar (500g / 1lb) orange marmalade
3-4 sprigs rosemary, leaves picked
extra rosemary for decoration, optional
Preheat your oven to 200C (400F). Cut away the tough skin from the
top side of the ham, leaving as much luscious fat as you can. Score
the ham in a diagonal pattern with cuts about 1inch apart. Press one
clove into the centre of each diamond.
Place in a baking tray, surrounding with the decorational rosemary,
if using. Bake for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat the marmalade and rosemary leaves in a small
saucepan unit it simmers. Remove from the heat.
After the ham has been in for 20 minutes, pour 1/2 the glaze over
the top, spreading. Return to the oven for another 20 minutes.
Smear over the remaining glaze. Bake for another 20 minutes,
remembering to turn again.
After the ham has been in for 1 hour, remove and baste by scooping
the juices from the bottom of the pan and drizzling over the top.
Bake for another 20 minutes, remembering to turn again.
After the ham has been in for 1 hour 20minutes it should be done. If
not, continue to base and check every 10 minutes until well coloured.
Serve hot or at room temperature.
