Apricot, Apple Cider Vinegar and Maple Glazed Ham
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 1 x 4-6kg ham
  • 2 tbsp cloves
  • ⅔ cup apricot jam (apple or marmalade work well too)
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • ⅓ maple syrup
  • splash of dark rum (optional)
  • 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  1. Remove the skin from the ham, then score your ham into diamonds crosswise (or have your butcher do this for you). If you are planning on having leftover ham, make sure to keep the skin.
  2. Preheat oven to 180C.
  3. Heat the jam, brown sugar, maple syrup and rum in a small saucepan until the ingredients have melted. Turn up the heat and reduce the glaze until it's thick and syrupy.
  4. While the glaze is on, stud each diamond with a clove.
  5. Liberally brush on the glaze, then place the ham in the oven for 45 mins, brushing with more glaze every 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven, allow to cool for 10 minutes then slice across the grain.
