  • Preheat the oven to 180°C fan bake.
  • Place the marmalade, orange juice, zest, honey, apple cider vinegar and cinnamon in a pot and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer for 10–15 minutes or until the mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon easily.

  • Remove the skin from the ham leaving a 1cm of fat on the surface. Score the fat with a knife creating a diamond pattern. Baste the ham with the glaze. Place a clove in the corner of each diamond. Place into a deep dish baking tray.
