Merry Mexican-Glazed Ham

Merry Mexican-Glazed Ham

Preheat oven to 150ºC

Place the ham on an oven tray and heat in the oven for 15 minutes (this will allow you to remove the skin from the ham, easier)

In a large mixing bowl, mix together the maple syrup, rum, and Simon Gault Home Cuisine Mexican Seasoning

Remove the ham from the oven and increase the temperature to 180ºC

Peel off the skin, leaving as much of the fat layer intact as possible

Score the fat diagonally — to make diamond shapes — and stud with cloves

Brush the ham with a generous coating of the glaze and place in the oven

Baste the ham after 15 minutes; again at the 45 minute point, with a final baste at 1 hour

After being in the oven for 1 hour 15 minutes, remove the ham from the oven and allow to rest before carving
