Orange and mustard glazed ham

A leg of ham lends a banquet feel to the party. And it will really impress your foodie guests...


Serves: 8
Prep time:
Cook time: ready in about 3 hours 15 minutes
Syns per serving:  Extra Easy


1 whole leg of ham
1 cinnamon stick
1 tsp peppercorns
1 tsp cilantro seeds
2 bay leaves
20 whole cloves

For the glaze
6 level tbsp of low-sugar orange marmalade
2 level tbsp stoneground mustard
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce


1. Put the ham in a very large saucepan and cover with cold water. Add the herbs, spices and bay leaves. Bring to the boil. Turn down to a simmer, and cook for about 2 hours. Top up with boiling water if necessary. Scoop off any scum that rises to the top.

2. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Drain the liquid from the ham pan. Place the ham in a large roasting tin. Cut away the skin, but leave behind a thin layer of fat. Score the surface with a sharp knife to create a diamond pattern and insert the cloves into the corners of the diamond shapes.

3. Mix all the glaze ingredients together. Brush half of the glaze over the ham, and roast for 15 minutes.Brush over the remaining glaze, and return to the oven for another 35 minutes. Baste the ham with the pan juices 3-4 times while cooking to allow the glaze to infuse the meat, and turn the pan around a few times.

4. Take the ham out of the oven and allow to rest for 15 minutes. Remove and discard all of the fat before carving.
