Tamarind and Apple Christmas Ham Glaze
Every year for the last 5 years I have got my ham from Manda Hellier at The Farm Gate Butchers who we see at the Parnell Farmers market every Saturday. My favourite glaze is a totally decadent, sticky and tangy sauce which makes the Christmas ham really stand out.
1 Granny Smith or other tart apple peeled and diced finely
1 jar of Jenny’s Tamarind Chutney (medium)
¼ cup apple juice
1 teaspoon of dijon mustard
Pre heat the oven to 200
Mix together all the ingredients in a bowl until combined.
Remove the skin of the ham leaving as much of the fat layer in place.
Score through the fat layer diagonally creating diamond shapes in the fat.
Line your baking try with a couple of layers of baking paper, placing the ham in the middle of the dish.
Baste with a couple of layers of the glaze.
Bake for 40 minutes basting the ham every 10 minutes with the glaze.
