Ingredients You'll Need

1 x 4 - 7KG ham
375 x ML verjuice or apple cider
100 x ML of honey
1 x TSP of salt
Cracked pepper to taste
1 x TBSP of chopped rosemary
1 x TBSP of chopped sage
2 x Cloves of garlic, (crushed)
2 x Cloves, (crushed)
2 x Star anise, (crushed)
Skin of one lemon, (grated)
100 x ML of extra virgin olive oil
1 x Onion, (roughly chopped)
1 x Carrot, (roughly chopped)
1 x Stick of celery, (roughly chopped)


Preheat oven to 180°C

Place carrot, celery, and onion in a baking tray.

Remove the skin from the ham leaving a generous layer of fat. Mix spices, herbs, lemon and garlic with oil to form a paste.

Cut some incisions into the ham with a sharp knife.

Rub ham with the paste generously and place on a the baking tray.

Add 3 cups of water to the tray.

Place the tray into the hot oven and keep at 180° for the first 30 minutes then reduce heat to 160°C and cover the ham with foil. Cook for 1 hour, checking from time to time and basting.

If juices in the tray dry just add a little more water!!

Meanwhile, combine honey and verjuice/apple cider in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce for 5 minutes.

When the ham is cooked remove it from the oven and uncover. Rest for 20 minutes. Baste with some of the verjuice/apple cider honey mixture and place back in the hot oven to form a glaze. After 5 minutes baste again and repeat a couple more times.
