Mānuka Honey and Orange Glazed Ham



1 cup Mānuka honey
Juice of two oranges
½ tbsp prepared mustard (smooth not wholegrain)
1 New Zealand ham on the bone
¼ cup whole cloves (optional)



Mix together the Mānuka honey, orange juice and mustard.
Run your fingers under the skin of the ham to remove it.
Score the fat in a criss cross pattern if wished with a small sharp knife.
Place in a large shallow baking dish and brush with a little of the glaze.
Place in a 180 degrees Celsius oven and brush with more glaze about every 5-10 minutes and cook until the ham is golden.
This will take about 45 minutes.
Stud with cloves, cover and cool before carving or refrigerating until cold.

For hot roast ham

Prepare the glaze and the ham as above.
Weigh your ham and calculate the cooking time.
Cook the ham at 150 degrees Celsius for 10 minutes per 500 grams.
About 40 minutes before the ham is cooked, begin brushing the glaze onto the ham.

How much ham to buy

As a main meat allow 125-175 grams meat or 225 - 250 grams with bone per person.
If you plan to serve ham with turkey then allow about 50-75 grams meat per person.
