  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Use a small, sharp knife to cut around the ham, about 8cm from the shank, in a zigzag pattern. Carefully run the knife under the rind, around the edge of the ham. Gently lift off the rind in 1 piece by running your fingers between the rind and the fat, leaving fat intact.
  2. Step 2

    Use a small, sharp knife to score the fat in a diamond pattern. Pour ½ cup (125ml) water in a large roasting pan. Place ham on a wire rack in the pan.
  3. Step 3

    Combine the marmalade, sugar, maple syrup, mustard and orange juice and zest in a small bowl. Brush half the glaze mixture over the ham. Bake for 40 mins, basting occasionally with half the remaining glaze.
  4. Step 4

    Add the almonds to the remaining glaze. Spoon almond mixture evenly over the ham. Bake for a further 20 mins or until almonds are lightly toasted and ham is caramelised.
  5. Step 5

    Transfer the ham to a serving platter and cut into slices to serve.
