1h 20m

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (160g) cherry jam
  • 1/2 cup (170g) orange marmalade
  • 1/2 cup (110g) brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) brandy or orange juice
  • 2 tbs wholegrain mustard
  • 2 tbs Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1/2 tsp mixed spice
  • 8.5kg Coles Full Leg Ham Bone In
  • 2 tbs whole cloves

Method

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 180°C. Combine the jam, marmalade, sugar, maple syrup and brandy or orange juice in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to the boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 mins or until the mixture thickens slightly. Strain through a fine sieve into a bowl and discard the solids. Add the wholegrain mustard, Dijon mustard, fennel seeds and mixed spice and stir to combine. Set aside to cool slightly.

STEP 2

Meanwhile, place the ham on a clean work surface. Use a small sharp knife to cut through the rind 8cm from the shank. Run a thumb under the rind to separate from the fat. Peel back, sliding your fingers under the rind to remove.

STEP 3

Use a small sharp knife to score the fat, diagonally, at 3cm intervals to form a diamond pattern (don’t score the fat too deeply as it can slide off during cooking). Push 1 whole clove into the centre of each diamond.

STEP 4

Place the ham on a wire rack in a roasting pan. Brush the ham with one-quarter of the jam mixture. Wrap the shank in foil. Bake, basting with remaining jam mixture every 15 mins, for 1¼ hours or until the ham caramelises and is golden brown. Set aside for 15 mins to cool slightly.

STEP 5

Transfer the ham to a large serving platter. Cut into slices to serve.
