You will need:

  1. 1/2 cup honey – we recommend products from Hive & Harvest cos local is best
  2. 1/2 cup dijon mustard
  3. 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  4. 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  5. 4kg Half Ham on the Bone
  6. 2 tablespoon bay leaves
  7. 50 grams wholegrain mustard
  8. 600 grams baby leaf salad 


Preheat oven to 180*C/160? fan-forced. Line a large roasting pan with baking paper.

Combine butter, honey, Dijon mustard, sugar and vinegar in a saucepan over medium heat, then stir for 5 minutes or until butter has melted and sugar has dissolved. Set aside.

Using a small, sharp knife, cut around ham rind, 10cm from shank end. Starting at the opposite end to shank, run your thumb under the rind to separate it from the fat. Peel back and discard rind. Score fat at 2.5cm intervals, ensuring not to cut all the way through to the meat. Place ham in pan and wrap shank end with foil.

Brush ham with a little butter mixture, then bake for 1 hour 15 minutes, basting every 15 minutes, or until golden and caramelised. Transfer ham to a platter, cover loosely with foil and rest for 30 minutes. Garnish with bay leaves and serve with wholegrain mustard and salad.
