Gourmet Christmas Ham


Preheat the oven to 180°C. Score the ham with a sharp knife on a diagonal to create a diamond pattern, and stud each diamond with a clove or two.

Bring the rest of your ingredients to the boil in a saucepan, and then allow to cool.

Place the ham on a greased wire rack in a baking dish lined with non-sticking baking paper and with a brush, baste the ham with about two thirds of the glaze.

Bake the ham for approximately 40-45 minutes at 180°C. Continue to baste with the remaining glaze every 15 minutes.

Serve and enjoy!
