Ham with Orange and Maple Glaze

(Serves 6-8)

  • 3-4 kg leg ham
  • 2 tablespoons of marmalade
  • 1/3 cup (75ml) dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 cup (250ml) orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Salt n pepper
  • whole cloves (optional, just looks prettier!)


Score diamond pattern over fat of ham.

Transfer ham to large baking dish; set aside.

Combine marmalade, dijon mustard, brown sugar, orange zest, maple syrup, salt n pepper and orange juice; this is your glaze.

 Preheat oven to 160 degrees C.

 Insert clove stems in diamond pattern.      

Brush ham well with the glaze.

Bake for 30 – 40 minutes minutes basting with remaining glaze half way through and after cooking.

I like to cool it and carve when cooled but it can be carved after resting for 10 minutes.
