Mango, Maple & Mustard Christmas Ham




  • Free Range, Chemical Free Leg Ham

  • 2 x mangoes (skin removed)

  • 2 tbsp maple syrup (or honey)

  2. Using a sharp knife, cut around the shank of the ham approx 10cm from the end. Run a knife around the rind edge and using your fingers gently lift the rind off from the fat.
  3. Score the fat in a diamond pattern, about 5mm deep and stud the centre of the diamond with cloves. Place the ham on the baking tray.
  4. Add all of the ingredients above into a food processor and process until combined.
  5. Glaze the ham on the tray before placing in theoven, then glaze every 20 - 25 minutes whilst cooking for 1hr 30 mins.
  6. Set aside to rest for 15 minutes once cooked, store any leftover ham covered with reserved rind in a damp, clean ham bag or pillowcase.
