Cherry glazed ham

370g jar cherry jam
1/2 cup (125ml) golden syrup
1/2 cup (100g) brown sugar

1/2 tsp ground allspice
1 cinnamon stick
1/4 tsp ground cloves
7kg full leg ham
2 tbsp whole cloves
Preheat oven to 180C. Place jam, syrup, sugar, 1/3 cup water, allspice, cinnamon and ground
cloves in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Simmer for 10 minutes or until the glaze
thickens. Strain the mixture, discarding solids. Meanwhile, cut through the rind 8cm from the
shank. Run thumb under rind to separate from fat. Peel back, sliding fingers under rind to
Using a small sharp knife, score the fat, diagonally, at 3cm intervals to form a diamond pattern.
Be careful not to score the fat too deeply or it may slide off during cooking and give an uneven
finish. Push one whole clove into the centre of each diamond. The cloves help hold the fat
layer in place and give the ham a subtle flavour.
Place the ham on a wire rack in a roasting pan. Add boiling water to the pan until it reaches
2cm up the sides of the pan. Brush the ham with a quarter of the cherry mixture. Wrap shank
in foil to stop it over-browning. Bake, basting with the cherry mixture every 20 minutes, for 1
hour 20 minutes or until the ham is golden. Remove the foil from the shank and serve.
