1 hour 15 minutes
10-12 people

Ingredients

  • 1 Scottsdale Pork Cooked on the Bone Leg Ham, rind removed

Burnt Honey, Whiskey & Orange Glaze

  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup Scotch whiskey

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180˚C fan-forced. Using a sharp knife or Stanley knife, score the ham fat (not the flesh) lengthways in 2cm intervals. Wrap the hock in foil (this prevents it from burning).
  2. To make the glaze, place honey into a medium saucepan and bring to the boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes (the mixture will bubble so keep an eye on it while it is on the heat) or until deep golden. Remove from heat and stir in brown sugar, orange juice and whiskey. Return to heat and simmer, stirring often, for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool for 45 minutes or until syrupy.
  3. Place ham on a greased rack in a large baking dish lined with foil (or use a disposable foil tray for easy cleanup).
  4. Brush the ham fat a few times to evenly coat with glaze. Bake for 50 minutes, brushing with remaining glaze occasionally, or until ham is golden and caramelised.
  5. Slice and serve warm or cold with mustard.
