Golden ale and honey-glazed easy-carve ham


The golden ale adds a bitter note to the sweetness and fat, so the ham really doesn't need any more accompaniment than a quality apple sauce and a simple green salad.

You'll need

1 easy-carve leg ham (about 7kg; see note) 345 ml golden ale, such as James Squire 1 orange, finely grated rind only 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped 1 tbsp Dijon mustard 110 gm (½ cup) brown sugar 180 gm (½ cup) honey To decorate: shaved orange rind

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Remove skin from ham (keep skin to cover leftover ham), and score a diamond pattern across the fat with a small sharp knife. Place in a large roasting pan and set aside.
  • 02
  • Combine remaining ingredients (except orange rind) in a bowl, season to taste.
  • 03
  • Brush orange rind with a little glaze, then scatter over a tray lined with baking paper and set aside. Pour remaining glaze over ham, covering ham completely. Transfer to oven and baste regularly until glaze begins to set (30-40 minutes), then increase oven to 200C and baste regularly until ham is golden and glazed (40-50 minutes).
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, roast orange rind until golden (5-10 minutes). Scatter over ham and serve.

Note Easy-carve hams are available from your butcher but may need to be ordered ahead.
