Ham is a great Christmas option being quite lean. This recipe uses fresh (not precooked) ham and has a lovely glaze and is served with a simple cider sauce.

Serves: 12 

  • 1 whole bone-in fresh ham
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese five spice

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. With a sharp knife, remove any skin from the ham (if any) but leave the fat. Place in a roasting tin on a rack.
  3. In a bowl, combine five spice, sugar, mustard, salt, pepper and cloves. Rub the mixture all over the ham, pressing it in so it sticks.
  4. Roast ham 4-5 hours, about 45 minutes per kilo. It's best if you can check with a meat thermometer, it should be 71 degrees C internally when you take it out.
  5. When the roast is done, transfer to a warm platter and let rest 20 minutes.
  6. Remove rack from the roasting tin and strain out the drippings into a small bowl. Skim the fat and return the drippings to the roasting tin. Place on a burner and add the cider. Boil, stirring, about 7 minutes. Strain into a gravy boat.
