Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour


  • 1 x leg ham
  • 1 x large orange
  • 1 x jar of Emelia’s Orange & Ginger Glaze
  • 1 tablespoon whole cloves


  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Begin by removing the skin from the ham. Gently insert your thumb between the skin and fat layer, and slide your fingers along to peel off the skin, leaving a nice layer of fat.
  3. With a sharp knife, score the fat layer both ways to create a diamond pattern across the fat.
  4. Using a basting brush, spread around half of the jar of Emelia’s Orange & Ginger Glaze all over the ham, covering both the meat and fat.
  5. Place the ham in the oven and bake for around 30 minutes. Check the ham every 10 minutes and re-glaze with the juices from the bottom of the pan using the basting brush.
  6. While the ham is baking, thinly slice your orange.
  7. After 30 minutes, remove the ham from the oven and cover it with the orange slices. Use the whole cloves as pins to hold the orange slices in place.
  8. Give the orange slices a coating of the Orange & Ginger Glaze and place the ham back in the oven for another 15 minutes or until the oranges start to caramelize.
  9. Serve hot, warm, or cold as desired.

Tips and Tricks:

  • For an extra zesty kick, consider adding some lemon zest or a touch of honey to the glaze.
  • If cloves are not to your liking, toothpicks can be used to secure the orange slices onto the ham.
