The Perfect Christmas Glaze

The Perfect Christmas Glaze

Glaze or not to Glaze?  Everyone has their own preference and if you get a juicy, quality ham, there is nothing better than eating it fresh. … but if you want to step it up, try this super easy, traditional glaze – which is sure to be a hit.


1 cup Dark Brown Sugar
1 ½ cups Pineapple Juice
1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
3 tablespoons Apricot Jam


Step 1

Prepare the ham by removing the skin by hand, being careful not to tear the fat. Use a sharp knife and score the fat across the ham diagonally (making diamond shapes) and generously add cloves in between the scores.

Step 2

Prepare the glaze by mixing ingredients over low heat for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Generously glaze your ham, and place on a wire rack inside a baking tray (Add 2cm of water to the bottom of the tray, but be careful when taking out of the oven!) Heat the ham at 180­°C, for approx 1.5 hours. Re-glaze your ham every 20 minutes, allowing it’s full flavour to develop. Allow to cool and enjoy.
