Cranberry Glazed Ham

aga, cranberry glaze, ham

I have cooked a fair few large hams over the years but this year I rang the changes with a cranberry glaze which I must share.

I cooked this 10lb after soaking in cold water for 6 hours. The slow cook for around 5 hours in the simmering oven of the aga makes for a totally moist joint which will still be wonderful days after the first serving. It's the glaze I want to share, though, so it doesn't matter whether you have cooked in a conventional oven or aga. It is based on a Nigella Lawson recipe from her book Feast.

You will need:

  1. Enough cloves to generously stud the ham
  2. 5 tablespoons cranberry jelly
  3. 1 tablespoon honey
  4. 1 tablespoon dry English mustard and a pinch of cinnamon

Mix all the glaze ingredients in a small pan until it is a syrupy consistency. Pour this over the studded ham and cook for around 20 minutes in lower aga or 180°C conventional.

Welcome to my blog! After a L O N G break from blogging during which Instagram (vannilla)took over my life, I am returning in a more varied format. Yes, I will bake and have been a Thermomix users from the days before it was cult-like. I'll share the best but I will also include that other hobby in my life, photography from my small island and beyond. If you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you! Anne

i'd love to hear from you...
