Recipe Mango Chilli Glazed Ham


    • Half leg ham, approx 5kg
    • 1 cup chilli jam
    • 4 ripe mangoes, stoned, peeled and chopped
    • 1 lime, juiced and zested
    • 2 tbsp dark rum (optional)
    • 1 ½ cups macadamias, chopped

    Serves: 12
    Preparation Time: 70 minutes
    Difficulty: Easy


    1. To make the glaze, place chilli jam, mango, lime juice, zest and rum in a food processor. Season and process until smooth. Stir through macadamias. Set aside.
    2. Preheat oven to 170°C (150°C fan-forced). Remove skin from ham, carefully leaving a layer of fat. Using a sharp paring knife, slice a diamond pattern into the fat, taking care not to go too deep.
    3. Place ham in a large roasting tray. Glaze hock with foil and brush ham generously with the glaze.
    4. Cook for 1 hour, basting every 15 mins. Once caramelised, remove from oven and let rest. Serve warm or cold with any extra glaze on the side.
