Cranberry and Maple Glazed Ham

Cranberry and Maple Glazed Ham
Serves 12-15 Prep Time 20 minutes Cook Time Varies with ham size


  • 4 - 4.5Kg ham cooked on the bone or ½ ham
  • 300ml Watties Bit on the Side Cracker Cranberry Sauce
  • ¼ cup Cottee’s Maple Flavoured Syrup
  • Zest from ½ orange
  • 12 cloves
  • 6 star anise


1. Carefully run your fingers under the skin of the ham to lift it away. Do this slowly so you finish with a smooth layer of fat. Place ham in a foil-lined roasting dish.

2. Using a small sharp knife cut the ham fat layer into a diamond pattern.

3. Mix together Wattie’s Bit on The Side Cracker Cranberry, Cottee’s Maple Flavoured Syrup and orange zest. Brush liberally over the ham. Pour 2 cups of water around the ham.

4. To glaze and serve hot, bake at 160°C allowing 15 minutes per Kg, brushing with glaze every 15 minutes. It maybe necessary to top up the water during cooking. To glaze and serve cold, bake at 180°C for 35-40 minutes, brushing with glaze every 15 minutes.

5. Garnish with cloves and star anise before serving.
