Gluten Free Glazed Ham

Glazed Ham

Easy and Delicious Gluten Free Glazed Ham

Serves 8–10 as a main meal – or a group on a table accompanied with other dishes.

This recipe has been borrowed from Donna Hay – and it is simply delicious and such a show stopper for the Christmas table.  Not to mention – very easy to make.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 CUPS (750ML) ORANGE JUICE
  • 3 CUPS (525G) BROWN SUGAR
  • 1 CUP (250ML) RED WINE VINEGAR
  • 1 STICK CINNAMON
  • 8 CLOVES
  • 16 SPRIGS THYME
  • 3 CUPS (750ML) PORT
  • 1 X 6–7KG HAM LEG, skin removed (ask our staff to prepare this for you)

METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to 220°C. Place the juice, sugar, vinegar, cinnamon, cloves and thyme in a medium saucepan over high heat and stir until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Bring to the boil and cook for 30 minutes or until reduced.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir through the port. Strain the glaze into a jug, discarding the solids.
  4. Place the ham, top-side down, into a tight-fitting, deep-sided baking dish and wrap the hock with non-stick baking paper followed by aluminium foil. Pour the glaze over the ham and roast for 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and reduce the oven temperature to 200°C.
  5. Turn the ham over, baste with the glaze and roast for a further 20–25 minutes or until golden. Remove the ham from the baking dish and place on a serving platter. Spoon the remaining glaze over the ham to serve.
