Preparation time: 60 minutes

Cooking time: 210 minutes

Ingredients

Serves: 6 people

  • 12 - Cloves
  • 1 tbsp English Mustard
  • 50 ml Irish Whiskey
  • 50 g Muscovado Sugar
  • 1 pinch SuperValu Cayenne Pepper
  • 80 g SuperValu Honey
  • 150 ml SuperValu Orange
    fresh
  • 3 kg SuperValu Quality Irish Ham Fillet
  • 2 tbsp SuperValu Soy Sauce
  • 0 - SuperValu Whole Black Peppercorns

Method

  1. Soak the ham in a large bowl of water for up to an hour to remove any excess salt. Place the ham in a large pot, cover with water and bring to the boil. Allow to simmer for about 2 ½ hours, then turn off the heat, allowing the meat to cool in the cooking liquor.
  2. Remove the ham from the cooking liquor and remove the outer rind. Score diamond-shaped lines into the fat. Stud cloves into the layer of fat and put onto a baking tray.
  3. While the ham is cooking, prepare the glaze. Combine all the glaze ingredients in a small saucepan over a medium heat, whisking to combine. Bring to a simmer and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until slightly thickened. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Brush the glaze over the studded ham.
  4. Loosely cover with tin foil and bake in the oven at 150°C/300°F/ gas mark 2 for 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on your oven. Take the foil off at this stage. Brush any leftover glaze over the ham and turn up the heat for an additional 5 to 10 minutes. Rest the meat for 30 minutes once removed from the oven before slicing.
