Miguel’s Honey - Glazed Christmas Ham

Miguel’s Honey - Glazed Christmas Ham

I really recommend using a good-quality, free-range ham for this recipe. Free-range hams have a higher fat content, more moisture and better flavour. If price is an issue, go for quality over quantity and choose a smaller two kilogram one.

When it comes to the glaze, you need to give it a lot of love and keep glazing the ham constantly as it cooks to achieve that really shiny look. It's all about that baste, 'bout that baste, no treble. You don't need to stick to this traditional glaze either - try being adventurous with Asian flavours like the sweet chilli variation I've given below. Ham works with everything! In fact, you can make this dish all year round. If you have ten people coming over, cook a ham! Make it Christmas every day.

Honey-Glazed Ham

Serves: 12 - 14 people


  • 1 large (4 kg) smoked leg ham, skin on (or 2 small 2 kg hams)
  • cloves, for presentation
  • 90 g (? cup) seeded mustard, plus extra to serve
  • 90 g (? cup) dijon mustard, plus extra to serve
  • 2 tablespoons hot English mustard, plus extra to serve
  • 1 ½ tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 300 g honey
  • 2 ½ tablespoons chicken stock 80 g (? cup) brown sugar


Preheat the oven to 200°C (fan-forced).

Skin and peel the ham, leaving some fat on the leg. Using a sharp knife, score the ham in a criss-cross pattern, then push in one clove at the join of each score. Place the ham leg in a large roasting tin.

Combine the mustards, Worcestershire sauce, honey, chicken stock and brown sugar in a large saucepan over medium heat. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until the glaze has reduced and thickened.

Brush some of the glaze over the ham, then place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Brush with more glaze three times as it bakes until the ham is golden and crispy.

Pour the glaze from the roasting tin into a jug and brush over the ham immediately before carving. Serve with a range of mustards.

Glaze Variation

For a sweet chilli-glazed ham, combine 80 ml (? cup) sweet chilli sauce, 1 lemongrass stalk, white part pounded and finely chopped, 2 tablespoons honey, 1 tablespoon fish sauce, 1 tablespoon soy sauce and the juice of

1 lime in a bowl. Garnish with coriander, basil and mint leaves mixed with 1 chopped red chilli, a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil and a good handful of crispy fried shallots.
