It wouldn’t be Christmas without a glorious ham on the festive menu. Ham glazes are easy to do and elevate this classic dish. They’re to feed a crowd! Try our tasty sweet & sour barbecue glaze.

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C fan bake.
  2. For sweet and sour barbecue glaze: add butter to a saucepan and melt over medium heat. Add the rest of the glaze ingredients and simmer until it thickens. Let cool slightly.
  3. Remove the skin from the ham leaving a 1cm of fat on the surface. Score the fat with a knife creating a diamond pattern, being careful not to cut through into the meat. Generously baste the ham with the glaze. Place into a deep dish baking tray. Cook for 35–45 minutes, basting every 15 minutes.
  4. Leave to rest for 15 minutes, baste again, then carve and enjoy!

-Cover with aluminium foil if the glaze starts browning too quickly.

-If you have extra glaze then serve it as an accompanying sauce. Yum!
