Ingredients

  • 7kg Coles Finest Free Range Triple Smoked Leg Ham
  • 2 tbs whole cloves
  • 1 cup (250ml) Guinness
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) honey
  • ⅓ cup (95g) wholegrain mustard

Method

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 190°C. 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 2

Use a small sharp knife to score the fat, diagonally, at 1.5cm 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 3

Combine the Guinness, maple syrup, honey and mustard in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 mins or until the mixture thickens slightly. 

STEP 4

Place the ham in a large roasting pan. Brush the ham with half the Guinness mixture. Bake, basting with the remaining Guinness mixture every 10 mins, for 1 hour or until ham caramelises and is golden. Set aside for 15 mins to cool slightly.

STEP 5

Transfer ham to a platter. Cut into slices to serve.
