Justin North: Glazed ham in a bag


You'll need

250 ml (1 cup) apple juice 250 ml (1 cup) agave syrup (see note) 2 tbsp hot English mustard 1 ham, bone in (about 8kg) 4 cloves, plus extra for studding 4 juniper berries

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 160C. Whisk juice, agave syrup and mustard in a small bowl. Place ham in an oven bag, add spices and half the marinade, seal bag and roast until warmed through (2-2½ hours). Remove ham from bag and, when cool enough to handle, remove skin and score fat in a crosshatch pattern. Stud with extra cloves, baste with remaining marinade and juices and roast, basting occasionally, until glazed (30-40 minutes).
Note Agave syrup, which is made from the agave plant, is available from select delicatessens and health-food shops.

This recipe is from the December 2010 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

“I love this ham recipe; it’s Mum’s. The smell takes me back to my childhood. I love the sticky, sweet flavours.” If you can’t find an oven bag large enough for the ham, place it on an oven tray and cover it tightly with foil.
