How Amazing is Honey Glazed Ham?
A glazed ham is actually one of my favourite things about Christmas. I love the smell it fills the house with as it is cooking, I love the look of it's sticky and shiny glaze and of course I love the taste! Honey glazed ham is one of the best meats you can eat, I swear. I like it with roasted potatoes and some nice green veg, with a pile of salad and mayo, or in a nice sandwich, it's good however.
That being said, a good glaze with a sweet but not to overpowering taste, that properly permeates the meat can make a huge different, and take a basic honey glazed ham to a whole new level. This recipe is for the glazed ham my mum made us this year - Honey, Mustard and Whiskey Marmalade Glazed Ham. But I also have another truly amazing Glazed Ham recipe - Ham Joint Cooked in Coke, which you should also check out if you love a glazed ham as much as I do.
Mum thinks this recipe may have been a Mary Berry Recipe she found in the Daily Mail, but she isn't sure. She writes them all in a big book so doesn't keep the actually printed recipes. So this may well be based on Mary Berry's Christmas Special Recipes from the Daily Mail last year, 2012 but there is a chance it was just a random one she found. Either way it is totally yummy!
Please Note: If the ham is salted then it will need to be soaked in cold water overnight before you start cooking it.

How to make this yummy honey, mustard and marmalade glazed ham
- If your ham is salted, then place it in a large pot and cover in cold water and set aside overnight. Then pour out the water and rinse the ham thoroughly.
- Place the ham, chopped veg, bay leaves, pepper corns and cider in a large pot. If the liquid doesn't cover the ham add water until it does.
- Slowly bring it to the boil then turn down to a simmer - then cook for the time given on the packet.
- Once cooked, remove the ham from the saucepan and discard the remaining liquid and veg.
- Cut all the skin off and score the meat in a diamond/check pattern. Then stud the meat with around a dozen cloves.
- Mix together the mustard, marmalade and honey till well combined. The original recipe uses an Orange and Whiskey Marmalade, but we used a plain orange marmalade, the choice is yours.
- Place the ham in a roasting tin and cover entirely with the honey, mustard mixture. Spread it all over the ham until it is entirely coated.
- Roast uncovered on 190C, Gas Mark 5 or 375F for 15-20 minuets
- Remove from the oven, set it aside for 5 minutes to allow it cool slightly, and the glaze to go sticky. Slice and enjoy however you please!
