  • Author: Pip Payne
  • Total Time: 2 hours 10 minutes
  • Yield: 8 1x


A deliciously glazed ham- perfect for picnics, lunches, salads and sandwiches

Syns: 1 per portion


  • 1 gammon joint (1.5-2kg)
  • 10 black peppercorns
  • 15 cloves
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tbsp pomegranate molasses (read above if you aren’t sure what this is)
  • Juice of 1 orange
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp dark soy saice
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar


  1. In a large pan, cover the ham with water, add in the peppercorns, cloves and bay leaves, bring to boil and boil for approx 1 hour (you want to allow 20 minutes per 500g meat)
  2. Pre-heat oven to 180c. Remove the ham from the water and allow to cool for 15 minutes
  3. Using a sharp knife, remove the fat from the outside of the ham and discard, then score the ham all over with a criss-cross pattern
  4. In a small pan, add in the pomegranate molasses, orange juice, mustard, soy sauce and sugar and bring to the boil, stirring constantly
  5. Pop the ham into a deep baking tray, and pour the glaze all over it.
  6. Roast for 10 minutes, then pull out and use a spoon to baste it with the glaze, Cook for a further 20 minutes, basting every 5-10 minutes to make sure that as the glaze gets more and more sticky in the baking tray, it is spread back over the ham.
  7. Rest for 15 minutes before serving. Perfect eaten hot or cold.
