Christmas Glazed Ham Recipe from JAM Corner Restaurant Townsville

As you start to think about Christmas Lunch, I thought I’d share this great Glazed Ham Recipe with you. It’s a beauty, and you won’t be disappointed.

Christmas Ham glazed with mango, lime, Manuka honey & Baharat spices

1 Quality ham 6.5kg
150ml Manuka honey
300gm Mango puree
250ml lime juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 chilli, finely chopped
1 tablespoon Baharat spices (available at Essentially Fresh Townsville)
30-40 cloves (optional)

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 160C
  2. Combine the mango, honey, sugar, lime juice and chilli in a bowl.
  3. With the knife cut around the shank, then carefully peel the skin away from the ham leaving behind the fat layer.
  4. Score the fat evenly in a crisscross fashion without the knife reaching the flesh.
  5. Place the ham in your roasting tray, season the ham with the Baharat spice mix evenly over the scored leg. In every second row place a clove in each of the scored sections to form a consistent pattern.
  6. Add 300ml water to the roasting tray.
  7. Pour over the glaze mixture and place in the oven. Baste every 20 minutes and your ham will have a delicious golden glaze.
  8. Cook for 90 minutes.
  9. Allow to rest for 40 minutes prior to serving.

My Suggestions

Ideally serve your Glazed Ham with roasted peaches and a grain & goat’s cheese salad.
And of course use local mangos – it is the season and they can be picked up all over Townsville currently.
