  • Active Time 15m
  • Total Time 14h 15m

Serves 10


  • 5 pound ham, boned and rolled
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 small onion, peeled
  • 1 carrot, sliced
  • 3 cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon black peppercorns
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cranberry sauce
  • 2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • Fresh cranberries for garnish


Soak the ham overnight in cold water. (If this is not possible, place the ham in a large saucepan of cold water and bring to the boil. Remove the ham, discard the water.)

Place the ham in a pan of cold, fresh water. Add the bay leaf, onion, carrot, cloves and peppercorns. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 1 1/2 hours.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Remove the ham from the water. Peel off the skin with a sharp knife, leaving the white fat.

Place the ham in a roasting pan. Using a knife point, score diagonal lines across the fat to make a diamond pattern.

Mix together the sugar, cranberry sauce, mustard and spices. Brush the mixture into the fat. Bake the ham for 30 minutes. Serve garnished with fresh cranberries.
