Honey Mustard Ham

Skill Level Easy
Cooking Time 1 h 30 mins
Servings 15


1 x 4-5kg smoked ham on the bone
1 cup of Capilano honey
¼ cup of whole-grain mustard
¼ cup of packed brown sugar
4 tablespoons melted, unsalted butter


  • 1

    Heat the oven to 180°C and arrange a rack in the lower third of the oven. Remove any plastic packaging or netting from the ham. Trim away the rind and any excess fat, leaving a thin layer (½ to 1cm).

  • 2

    With a sharp knife, score a 2cm wide diamond pattern over the ham, being careful not to cut more than 1cm in. Set the ham aside to rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.

  • 3

    While the ham is resting, make the glaze by combining the honey, mustard, sugar and butter in a bowl, stirring until well combined and sugar has started to dissolve.

  • 4

    Line a baking sheet with several sheets of aluminium foil (it will make cleanup a lot easier). Place the ham on the baking sheet, scored side up, and loosely cover it with baking paper, then aluminium foil. Bake for 30 minutes.

  • 5

    When the ham is ready, remove it from the oven and increase the temperature to 220°C. Discard the baking paper and foil.

  • 6

    Brush the ham with a quarter of the glaze (about 1/3 cup), return it to the oven, and bake uncovered for 15 minutes. Repeat every 15 minutes until all of the glaze has been used and a golden-brown crust has formed on the ham (about 50-60 minutes).

  • 7

    Let ham rest for 20 minutes before slicing and serving.
