1 Whole Leg Ham (approx. 3kg)
3 tbs brown sugar
Preheat oven to 160°C.
Take the leg ham out of the packaging, remove any netting and place in a large baking dish.
Using a knife, score the skin in straight lines on the diagonal and about 2 inches apart over the surface of the ham. Do the same thing in the other direction to create a diamond-shaped mark all over the ham. Stick the cloves into diamond-shaped marks.
Spread a generous layer over the Ham.
Pour one cup of water into the bottom of the baking dish.
Cover the baking dish with a layer of aluminium foil without touching the top of the ham to retain moisture.
Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, then remove the foil, baste with remaining glaze and bake uncovered for another 30 minutes until is golden brown.
Remove from oven and rest for 15 minutes – Carve and enjoy! Serve hot or cold.
