Glazed ham recipe

Gather loved ones for a traditional ham with all your fave trimmings

Orange marmalade glaze is a Kiwi classic when it comes to Christmas ham. Serve with your favourite Yuletide sides like roasted vegetables and salads.
Prep time 5 minutes
Cook time 45-55 mins
Serves 6-8
  • 1 cup orange marmalade
  • Zest and juice of 1 orange
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 Farmland pre-cooked Hampden ham leg
  • Whole cloves
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan bake.
  2. Place marmalade, orange juice, zest, honey, apple cider vinegar and cinnamon in a pot, bringing to the boil. Reduce to a simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon easily.
  3. Remove skin from the ham, leaving 1cm of fat on the surface. Score the fat with a knife, creating a diamond pattern. Baste the ham with the glaze. Place a whole clove in the corner of each diamond. Put ham into a deep dish baking tray.
  4. Cook the ham for 35-45 minutes.
  5. Leave to rest for 15 minutes before carving.
Food tip: Half way through cooking time, cover ham with aluminum foil if the glaze starts browning too quickly.
