File this one in your culinary arsenal. Matt Moran from Sydney’s Aria Restaurant teaches us how to glaze a ham and get it ready for Christmas dinner.
Baked Christmas Ham with Maple Syrup and Clove Glaze
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp dried mustard
¼ cup cider vinegar
¼ cup maple syrup
¼ cup cloves
1. Work that arm! Mix the brown sugar, dried mustard, cider vinegar, and maple syrup in a bowl until well combined.
2. Stay sharp. Use a well-sharpened knife to to carefully remove the skin, making sure the fat remains on the meat. Score the fat in a criss-cross pattern with the knife.
3. Stud it. Place the cloves in the cross sections evenly over the ham.
4. Bake it. Place the ham in a baking tray and pour over the glazing mixture. Bake at 180?C for approx 30 minutes or until the outside has turned a golden brown colour, basting the ham with a brush 4-5 times throughout.
Voila! Your Christmas ham is now ready to be devoured. Happy feasting!
