- Servings : 6
- Cook Time : 1:15 h
- Ready In : 1:15 h
- 1 whole pre-cooked bone-in ham
- about 70 whole cloves
- For the sugar glaze:
- 100g brown sugar
- 75g maple syrup or golden syrup
- 60ml rum, pineapple juice or apple juice
Preheat oven to 150C. Place the ham on a large oven tray and warm in oven for 10-15 minutes until the skin starts to loosen (this helps it peel off easily). While the ham is warming, make the glaze by mixing together all ingredients.
Remove ham from oven and increase temperature to 180C. Cut through skin around shank then peel o ham skin by gently pushing your fingers between skin and fat. Discard the skin.
Use a sharp knife to lightly score the fat in diagonal cross-hatches. Insert a clove at each of the points where the cross-hatches intersect. Brush ham all over with the glaze and bake until golden (about 1 hour), basting with remaining glaze as needed. Serve hot or at room temperature.
