Servings 10


  • 4 kg leg of ham, on the bone with rind on
  • 2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3 tbsp seeded mustard
  • Zest of 1 orange, finely grated
  • 30 cloves Approx


  • To a saucepan add orange juice, honey, mustard and orange zest, whisk to combine. Simmer over medium heat until begins to slightly thicken. Set aside to cool. 
  • Use a shark knife to score skin around ham hock. Use fingers to peel back skin around the ham leaving the fat in tact. 
  • Use a sharp knife to score through the fat in a criss cross patter (be careful not to cut through the meat). 
  • Brush ham with a generous amount of glaze. 
  • Pierce a clove into each diamond. 
  • Place ham in a roasting pan and cook in oven for 15-20 minutes or until it starts to colour. 
  • Remove from oven and brush again with remaining glaze and put back into oven for another 15-20 minutes or until the top of the ham has caramalised. 


  • Take out ham from fridge up to an hour before prepping, this will make it easier to remove skin from ham.
  • If time permits, re-glaze ham every 10-15 minutes to enhance flavours and caramelisation.Watch the base of your baking tray doesn’t start to burn from the glaze, if so add a touch of water to the pan.
