How to Glaze your Ham

Remove the rind 

Place your ham skin-side up, and use a sharp knife to carefully remove the rind, leaving behind a thick layer of fat. This will help keep your Ham from drying out.

Score the fat
 

Using a small sharp knife, score the fat in a criss-cross diamond pattern, approximately 5mm deep and 15mm apart.

Brush on the glaze 

Using a pastry brush, paint your glaze over the ham, covering the entire top side of the ham where you have scored your pattern.

Cook the ham 

Place the ham in a deep baking tray and cook in a preheated oven at 160˚C, Approximately 10 minutes for every 500g.

Brush again with glaze 3-4 times during cooking. Remove from the oven and rest the ham for 10 minutes covered in foil. (Make sure the foil doesn’t touch your glaze.)

Enjoy!
