Directions

It's not a holiday feast without the Christmas ham and this recipe for a sticky sweet glaze will certainly bring some festive cheer. Truth be told, it's so tasty you'll be lucky to have leftovers for the sandwiches!
  1. Heat the oven to 140C and line the roasting rack with several long pieces of foil. These should be large enough to wrap up and around the ham.
  2. Place the ham cut-side down in the pan.
  3. Use a sharp knife to score the skin of the ham into a crosshatch pattern. Slice long lines into the skin (not into the meat itself) and then slice back the other way to form the pattern.
  4. Put it in the oven, well wrapped in foil and bake for 2 to 2 1/2 hours. It won't need any attention or checking until at least 1 1/2 hours have passed.
  5. To make the glaze, combine the honey, butter and sugar in a pan and stir over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved and the butter is melted.
  6. Stir in the vinegar and Worcestershire sauce.
  7. Turn off the heat and set aside.
  8. Glaze the ham, and bake for 10 more minutes and then remove it from the oven.
  9. Cut the slices away from the bone and serve.
