Honey and mustard glazed ham

Honey and mustard glazed ham

This beautifully flavoured honey and mustard glazed ham will be the perfect way to compete the dinner table this Christmas


  • 7 kg whole ham


  • 1 cup liquid honey (approximately 320g)
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 70 g butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a large oven dish with 2 layers of foil. Remove the skin from the ham and carefully score the fat. Place the glaze ingredients into a saucepan and heat stirring until the sugar has dissolved and the butter has melted. Place the ham into the prepared oven dish with a cup of water. Brush the ham generously with the glaze. Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes, baste the ham again and repeat several times during cooking. Ham should be ready to serve after 1 hour. Glazing the ham can be done the day before it is needed. Store in the refrigerator loosely covered with a clean damp tea towel.
