Step 1: You will need…

  • 5 kg uncooked ham
  • 1 1/3 ltr cider
  • handful of cloves
  • 6 tbsp honey
  • 10 peppers
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 large pot
  • 1 baking tray
  • 1 knife
  • 1 chopping board
  • 1 slotted spoon
  • 1 tongs
  • 1 ladle

Step 2: Skin the ham

Run a sharp knife around the edge of the ham, and then peel off part of the skin. Run the knife around again and once more remove any remaining skin.

Step 3: Boil the ham

Transfer the ham to the large pot. Then pour in the peppercorns, the two bay leaves, pour in the cider and using the same jug pour in enough water to cover the ham. Place on a high heat and allow to boil.

Once boiling take the ladle and remove the scum from the surface, discarding the waste. Turn to a simmer and allow to cook for approximately forty five minutes.


Boiling the ham keeps it nice and moist.

Step 5: Preheat oven

Preheat oven to 175C/ 330F/ GM 3.

Step 6: Prepare the ham

Once cooked remove the ham from the heat, and place on the baking tray. Allow to cool as it will be very hot. Stud the top half with the cloves. Then using a spoon carefully drizzle over the honey, making sure the whole area is well covered.

Step 7: Roast the ham

Transfer the baking tray in the centre of the preheated oven and leave to bake for approximately one hour.

Step 8: Slice the ham

Before slicing leave the ham to rest for fifteen minutes. Then remove from the baking tray and place on the chopping board. Then with a fork pierced on its back to hold it, slice the ham into thick chunky slices using a sharp knife.

Step 9: Serve

Your ham is now ready to serve.
