What better way to celebrate the festive season than a Honey Glazed Ham? Crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside. This sweet and savoury dish will go down a treat and is perfect for Christmas dinner!


  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup MVH Native Bush Honey
  • 1 Tbsp. dijon mustard
  • 2 Tbsp. pineapple juice
  • 2-3kg cooked ham (bone-in)
  • Cloves


  1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C and lightly oil a rack. Place the rack into the roasting dish with 2 cups of water.
  2. In a medium saucepan over a medium heat, heat the butter, brown sugar, honey, mustard and pineapple juice until it starts to bubble.
  3. Remove from the heat and allow to cool and thicken.
  4. Remove the skin from the ham by gently sliding your fingers under the skin layer and it should peel away from the fat.
  5. Score the fat by cutting diagonal lines through it without cutting into the meat. Place a clove into each cross-section of the scores.
  6. Brush the ham with the glaze then place meat side down on the rack.
  7. Cook in the ham for an hour, brushing with glaze at 15 minute intervals.
