Cranberry & Pomegranate Glazed Ham

Cranberry & Pomegranate Glazed Ham

 

SERVES 10-12 | 10 MINS PREP | 70 MINS COOK TIME

 

INGREDIENTS

1 whole New Zealand ham on the bone

  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • 4 Tbsp cranberry jelly
  • 1 star anise
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • Peel and juice of 1 orange
  • 2 cloves

 

METHOD

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Carefully remove the skin from the ham, ensuring to leave all of the fat behind to maximise flavour. Using a sharp knife, score the fat in a criss-cross pattern.

To make the sauce, place the remaining ingredients in a pot and bring to a simmer. Cook for further 10 minutes on low, stirring occasionally so it doesn’t burn. Using a pastry brush, paint a third of the sauce over the ham.

Place the ham in a deep baking tray and cook in the oven for 1 hour.

While the ham is cooking, return the rest of the sauce to a simmer and cook for a further 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and using a fork, take out the star anise, cloves, orange peel and cinnamon stick. Allow the sauce to cool and thicken to a jam-like consistency.

Once the ham is cooked, rest covered with foil for 10 minutes. To serve, slice thick pieces and drizzle over the cranberry sauce.
