Glaze for baked ham

Try Stephanie Alexander’s Baked Ham Glaze from The Cook's Companion.

INGREDIENTS

  • Grated zest and juice of 1 orange
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 leg of cooked ham
  • Cloves
  • 1/2 cup white wine

 

Method

Preheat oven to 180°C and line a baking dish with foil. Mix zest, juice, mustard and sugar in a bowl. Remove skin (rind) from ham and score fat in a diamond pattern. Press a clove into the middle of each diamond. Spread half the glaze over ham. Place ham in baking dish and pour in wine to prevent ham sticking. Bake for about 40 minutes, basting once or twice with the rest of the glaze, until a rich shiny colour.
