  • 4 kg ham, skin removed
  • ¾ cup runny honey
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice

  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. Using a sharp knife, score the ham fat (not the flesh) crossways in ½ centimetre intervals.
  3. Wrap the ham hock in foil (this prevents it from burning). Place the ham on a greased rack in a large baking dish lined with foil.
  4. Add honey, mustard, orange zest and juice to a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring often until warmed through.
  5. Insert orange slices in the scores made on the ham fat, then glaze ham with 1/3 of the honey mixture and bake for 30 minutes uncovered.
  6. Glaze with half of the remaining honey mixture and bake for a further 30 minutes. 
  7. Remove ham from oven. Glaze with the remaining honey mixture being sure to get glaze in between slices. Transfer to serving platter.
