Glazed baked ham


  • 1 cooked leg ham
  • 1 large jar apricot jam
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup dry sherry
  • 2 tbsp wholgrain mustard
  • 1/4 cup of cloves

Glazed baked ham

Peel the ham skin off gently, leaving a good layer of fat.

Score a diamond pattern into the fat and stud cloves into the criss cross junctions. Sprinkle cinnamon all over.

Preheat the oven to 200°C.

In a small saucepan, heat the jam with a few tablespoons of the sherry to thin it out.

Spread about half of this mix over the top of the ham and press the brown sugar over the glaze generously. Make sure that the sugar is pressed into all the gaps.

Place the ham in a baking dish and add 2cm of water.

Bake for one and half hours. Baste every 20 minutes and be careful not to burn it.

Add the mustard to the remaining glaze and pour over the cooked ham slices at the table.

    Sounds yummy I did my first glazed ham last year and it tasted amazing definitely worth the time in glazing it. Everyone commented on how good it tasted too which was even better it’s a great Christmas Day food.

    Yum!!! Love baked ham!! We will likely purchase a half ham for Christmas, want to get organic/free range if possible 🙂 It’s so good having a ham on the bone in the fridge ready for cutting off a chunk or two just to eat on it’s own or to make a sandwich or toastie!! We don’t eat ham often but Christmas time is a good time to get it and it lasts for ages
