Hut Christmas 2013 - ham

Two years ago we bought our first Mount Gnomon farm ham. They breed happy free range Wessex Saddleback pigs in north west Tasmania.

Again, a Christmas ham is a favourite memory of my childhood Christmas'. To feed my family of 7, the leg ham Dad would buy would be humongous, taking up most of the fridge. I remember as a teenager taking the delivery of our ham and Mr Bean sized turkey at the front door. I nearly collapsed under the weight of them. Dad never glazed it though. 

Rob generally glazes it with a mixture of whatever is at hand, usually quince jelly, orange juice and mustard. It does make it glisten so nicely, and looks pretty studded with cloves. 

Do you enjoy ham at Christmas?
Any tips for the glaze?
