  • Preheat the oven to 180°C fan bake.
  • Remove the skin from the ham leaving 1 cm of fat on the surface. Score the fat with a knife creating a diamond pattern. Generously baste the ham with the apricot jam or your choice of glaze. Place a clove in the corner of each diamond. Place into a deep baking dish.
  • Place on the lower shelf in the oven and cook for 60-75 minutes, basting as needed, until cooked to your liking.
  • Leave to rest for 15 minutes, baste again, carve and enjoy.
