A delectable sticky glazed ham cooked in spiced cider and with a tangy marmalade glaze! This is one of my most requested recipes from family and friends - I have been cooking and preparing this ham for about 20 years now; it is wonderful for celebrations and festive gatherings! You can increase the quantities and weight with ease, although I have given the minimum ham weight here. The "boil before baking" method gives you a moist and flavourful ham with a sticky glaze, and just a hint of spices. A couple of "musts", do use good quality high fruit ratio marmalade, and if the ham is smoked or heavily brined - do soak the ham joint overnight or for up to 24 hours, in cold water - it disperses the excess salt. This ham makes a wonderful centrepiece for any special meal; however, it is also a wonderful and very economical way of providing two more types of snacks or meals - ham sandwiches, plus the ham stock makes a delicious base for all types of soups, especially ham and pea soup! I have stated oranges for the decorative finish - but clementines or tangerines would work very well too.
