Christmas Ham Recipe

Recipe | 23rd November 2018

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 Horse Shoe Gammon 
  • 100ml of Maple Syrup
  • 100ml Tamari Soya Sauce
  • 2 Star Anise
  • 3 Medium Carrots
  • 1 Large Onion
  • 2 Sprig of Thyme
  • 3 Cloves of Garlic
  • 10 Black Peppercorns
  • 2 Cinnamon Sticks
  • 2 Bay Leaves

Steep the ham overnight in water.

In a large pot, bring the water to a boil and skim off any impurities.

Add the bay leaves, onions, garlic, carrot, star anise, thyme and peppercorns. Simmer for 3 to 4 hours.

Turn off the heat and leave the ham to cool in the water.

Remove the skin from the cooked ham, leaving a good layer of fat.

Score the fat all over in a diamond shape.

In a pot, bring the maple syrup, star anise and soy sauce to a simmer.

Cook for a few minutes.

Place the ham on a roasting tray.

Bake the ham for 15 minutes in a 180°C pre-heated oven until the fat starts to crispen.

Drizzle the glaze over the ham.

Roast in the oven for an extra 30 mins, basting every 10 mins to form a light caramel crust.
