No: Gluten / Dairy / Egg / Nuts


  • ham – 1/2, or 1-2kg, leg ham portion
  • cloves – whole

Honey mustard glaze:

  • brown sugar – 100g
  • Worcestershire sauce – 30g (*ensure GF if required; make your own with the Worcestershire Sauce recipe from The Make Your Own Subscriber Only Bonus Issue)
  • mustard – 1 Tbsp, wholegrain
  • vegetable stock – 60g, liquid


  1. Preheat oven to 160C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper.

Honey mustard glaze:

  1. Place sugar (100g), Worcestershire sauce (30g), mustard (1 Tbsp) and stock (60g) into the bowl. Program 6 minutes / 100C / Speed 2.


  1. Meanwhile, use a sharp knife to cut the majority of the rind off the ham piece (1/2 leg). If using a whole leg of ham, leave some rind on the shank of the leg.
  2. Using hands, and the knife if needed, lift the rind off the fat layer. Ensure a layer of fat remains for the cooking process.
  3. Using the knife, score a criss-cross pattern into the fat to form diamonds. This will need to be 1/2cm deep. Place ham onto the baking tray.
  4. Press a whole clove into the centre of each diamond.
  5. Baste the ham with 1/4 of the honey mustard glaze.
  6. Place tray into the oven and bake for 1 hour 20 minutes for half a leg of ham or approximately 1 hour 45 minutes for a full leg. Baste ham every 30 minutes or so with the glaze for maximum flavour.
  7. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 15 minutes before carving.
