1. Carefully run your fingers under the skin of the 100% New Zealand Cooked Half Ham on the Bone to lift it away. Do this slowly so you finish with a smooth layer of fat that will glaze beautifully. Place on a foil-lined baking tray.
2. Using a sharp small knife cut the ham fat layer into a criss-cross pattern.
3. Mix together the Wattie's Wok Creations Sweet Chilli and Lime Stir-fry Sauce and lemon or lime juice and brush this liberally over the ham. Arrange the star anise on top and secure in place with toothpicks.
4. To glaze, bake at 180°C for 35-40 minutes, brushing with the glaze every 10 minutes.
To serve hot: cook at 160°C, allowing 20 minutes per kg, brushing with remaining sauce every 10 minutes until all has been used. Sprinkle with the lime rind just before presenting to carve.
Serve the ham hot or cold.
