Honey Ginger Glazed Ham is a more delicious version of the typical Christmas ham. It tastes amazing!

Honey Ginger Glazed Ham makes me think of kids’ nursery rhyme ‘This Little Piggy’, but in mine, the ending goes like this:

This little pig had roast beef and this little piggy had none. This little piggy went wee wee wee all the way to my Christmas table!


  1. Cut through the rind of the ham about 10 cm from the shank (bone) end of the leg.

  2. Leave the rind on the shank but remove from the rest of the ham by running your fingers between the rind and the fat then pulling back.

  3. Using a sharp knife, score (cut lightly) the fat in a diamond pattern, taking care not to cut more than 5 mm deep. Push a clove into the centre of each diamond.

  4. Combine ¼ cup of the water, honey, ginger and sugar in a small saucepan and stir over a low heat until the sugar dissolves.

  5. Blend or process until the glaze is smooth.

  6. Pour the remaining water into a large baking dish and place the ham on a wire rack in the dish.

  7. Brush ham all over with the glaze and cover the shank with foil.

  8. Bake at 180 degrees for about 1 hour or until the ham is browned all over, making sure to brush the glaze over the ham frequently.

  9. Can be served hot or cold.

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Honey Ginger Glazed Ham is not suitable for freezing as a whole, but may be sliced finely, layered between sheets of baking paper and sealed in an air tight container for up to six months.

This dish is truly perfect for Christmas because it tastes like it has been sent from above! Like a gift from God!

I’m warning those who are currently on a diet – all of you might forget about your weight once you taste this! You’ll drool over this! You’ll ask for more!
