Honey Glazed Ham

A lot of recipes I have seen for cooked ham say that you need to soak the ham first, then either boil it or put it in the oven. But I’m only cooking a small one and I found the ham delicious, even though I skipped the soaking part!

Honey Glazed Ham


1 Small Gammon joint

2-3 tbsp clear honey


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 190c/fan 170c/gas 5. Lay a sheet of foil in a roasting tin large enough to take the joint with some room to spare.
  2. Score the top and the bottom of the ham with a sharp knife in a criss cross pattern.
  3. Place your ham in the roasting tin and spoon on the honey, until the whole ham is covered.
  4. Cover the roasting tin with foil and place in the oven. Cook for 35 minutes per 500g.
  5. Uncover the ham and put it back in the oven for 35 minutes.

The possibilities are endless for this tasty ham. It makes a brilliant filling for sandwiches (something to really look forward to at work!) Or in salads, or go a bit retro and have it with egg and chips with pineapple on top. Such an easy and cheap recipe that you would not fail to enjoy! I promise.
