Preparation 20 mins
Cook 1 hr and 30 mins

  • 100g brown sugar
  • 80mL maple syrup
  • 80mL honey
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 8kg leg ham, on bone

Step 1
Stir the sugar, maple syrup, honey and mustard in a medium mixing bowl until the sugar has dissolved.

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a large salt&pepper baking dish with 2 layers of non-stick baking paper. Place the oven shelf in the lowest position, ensure during this step that all other shelves are removed.

Step 3
Using a sharp knife, cut around the shank of the ham, make sure this is about 10cm from the end.

Step 4
Run a knife under the rind around edge of ham.

Step 5
Gently lift the rind off in 1 piece, you can do this by running tour fingers between the rind and the fat for easy lift.
