How do I make it ?
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.
Using a small sharp knife cut the ham fat layer into a diamond pattern.
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.
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.
Garnish with cloves and star anise before serving.
