Recipe for a 4 kg Christmas Ham


  • 4 kg Ham on the Bone
  • ½ cup Chang's Hoisin Sauce
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 2 tbs lemon juice
  • 2 tbs honey
  • 1 tbs Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp ground ginger OR grated fresh ginger


  1. Preheat oven to 165C fan-forced.
  2. Place all glaze ingredients in a saucepan and bring to boil. Simmer for 3 minutes, take off heat and allow to cool while preparing ham.
  3. Prepare ham by removing skin (if skin still on), caution not to damage layer of fat underneath. Next score ham using a sharp knife in thin straight lines.
  4. Brush the fat with 1/3 of the glaze and then place into preheated oven for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes remove from oven and re-glaze with the second third of the glaze. Repeat this in a third time in another 30 minutes and bake for a final half-hour (total cooking time 1.5 hours). Remember to turn the baking dish in the oven for even colouring.
  5. Once cooked allow to sit for 15 minutes before calving and serving.
