Truffle Honey Glazed Ham

If you’re feeling festive, there is no better way for a foodie to celebrate than with a delicious Christmas ham. Of course, our ham has a luxurious secret ingredient – White Truffle Honey glaze!

Preparation: 20 minutes  /  Cooking: 90 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2.5kg of green gammon
  • 10 whole peppercorns
  • 3 carrots
  • 3 spring onions
  • 1 white onion
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 tablespoons of wholegrain mustard
  • 240g TruffleHunter white truffle honey
  • Teaspoon of cider vinegar
  • 20 cloves

Method

Step 1:
Place the ham in cold water, bring to the boil and drain (leave the gammon in the pan). Cover the gammon with cold water and add the peppercorns, bay leaves, chopped carrots & onions. Simmer for an hour and leave to cool in the pan for 30 minutes.

Step 2:
Whilst the ham is cooking, mix the white truffle honey, cider vinegar and wholegrain mustard in a bowl. Remove the ham and peel away any skin leaving the layer of fat intact. Score the fat by making a criss-cross pattern with a sharp knife. Stud each square of fat with a single clove.

Step 3:
Brush the ham liberally with the white truffle honey mixture, place in a roasting tray and bake in a 170C preheated oven for 60 minutes.

Step 4:
Remove the ham from the oven and brush the ham liberally with the remaining mixture and return to the oven, basing and brushing the ham with the white truffle mixture every 20 minutes. Brush and baste one last time. Carve and enjoy.
