AT A GLANCE
The golden ale adds a bitter note to the sweetness and fat, so the ham really doesn't need any more accompaniment than a quality apple sauce and a simple green salad.
|01||Preheat oven to 180C. Remove skin from ham (keep skin to cover leftover ham), and score a diamond pattern across the fat with a small sharp knife. Place in a large roasting pan and set aside.|
|02||Combine remaining ingredients (except orange rind) in a bowl, season to taste.|
|03||Brush orange rind with a little glaze, then scatter over a tray lined with baking paper and set aside. Pour remaining glaze over ham, covering ham completely. Transfer to oven and baste regularly until glaze begins to set (30-40 minutes), then increase oven to 200C and baste regularly until ham is golden and glazed (40-50 minutes).|
|04||Meanwhile, roast orange rind until golden (5-10 minutes). Scatter over ham and serve.|
Note Easy-carve hams are available from your butcher but may need to be ordered ahead.
