DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 100 - 125°C.
  • Rinse ham with cold water and pat dry.
  • Put in a roasting bag and cut a small hole on top of the bag. Push a roasting thermometer into the thickest part of the ham.
  • Put the ham on the rack in the oven (or a cookie sheet with sides, if you prefer. IF the roasting bag leaks, you may have a big mess in your oven without the sheet!).
  • Bake until the thermometer shows the internal temperature of the ham to be 75-80 C (juicy - well done). It will take about 45 - 55 minutes/1 kg (2 lbs).
  • Remove the bag carefully: save some of the pan juice for making gravy. Remove the net (if there is one!), skin and as much of the fat as you like.
  • Let ham sit for a few hours or to cool completely before coating.
  • Preheat oven to 225°C.
  • Mix mustard and honey and coat the ham with the mixture. Press dry breadcrumbs on the coating.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes or until browned.
  • Decorate the surface of the ham with cloves.
  • Serve with gravy, boiled potatoes, root vegetable casseroles and boiled prunes.
