Orange glazed ham (T.L.)



  1. Stir the juices and sugar in a saucepan over a medium- low heat for 2 min. Add the cinnamon stick, ginger and 3 star anise. Simmer for 30 min till lightly thickened. Cool for 1-2 hours. Stir in the soy sauce.
  2. Use a small sharp knife to remove the rind from the ham leaving about 6-7 cm of the portion closest to the joint.
  3. Preheat to 180C. Place ham in a roasting tray. Brush ¼ cup of glaze over the ham and bake for 15 min. Remove from oven. 4. Cover the rind covered portion with a piece of aluminium foil to prevent burning.
  4. Arrange the orange slices, overlapping, on top of the ham. Secure each slice with a clove. Gently brush glaze over the top. Place the star anise on top of oranges. Bake for 1 hour and 15 min, brushing ham with the marinade every 15 min (about 5 times).
  5. Strain the juice and serve the ham.

(Optional – Add a can of sliced pineapple to the juices and bake in the last 15 min. Serve ham.)
