Christmas ham

1 Ham Soaked in cold water over night
– 1 carrot (sliced)
– stick celery (sliced)
– 4 bay leaves
– 1 onion peeled & sliced (personally I’d just half the onion)

For the Glaze:

2 tblsp cloves
2 tblsp brown sugar
2 tblsp mustard (English or Dijon, ça depende un peu ton goût)
3 tblsp honey
1 bottle cider (the silly tossers don’t specify size)

METHOD

Place ham in large pot of cold water, add other ingredients and boil. Simmer and cook for 15 mins/lb approx. Leave to cool in its liquid. Remove ham. Remove excess fat but leave 1/2 inch. With sharp knife, make incisions in criss cross formation. Brush with mustard. Stud with cloves and sprinkle with brown sugar and honey. They surely mean drizzle the honey Add cider to the tray – which suggests it’s not a massive bottle…. Place in oven @ 160 Celsius for an hour. Continue to baste ham during cooking.net
