Recipe by Georgia Houston from GH Nutrition
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 50 minutes
1 cup orange marmalade jam
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup orange juice
5kg leg of ham, skin removed and trimmed
Cloves, for stuffing
Preheat oven to 200°C. Place the jam, honey and orange juice in a saucepan over high heat and whisk to combine. Bring to the boil and cook for 5–7 minutes or until thickened slightly. Set aside to cool slightly.
Using a small, sharp knife, score the ham fat in a diamond pattern and cover the hock with aluminium foil.
Place the ham on a lightly greased wire rack in a baking dish lined with non-stick baking paper. Push a clove into each diamond and brush with the glaze. Cook for 40–50 minutes, brushing with the glaze every 10 minutes, or until the ham is golden and caramelised.
