Ham Glazes
by Hellers - NZ's Butcher
Our wonderful ham on the bone can be eaten all year round and you just can’t have a good old New Zealand Christmas without one! Proudly 100% New Zealand ham with its smokey sweet notes and beautiful tenderness is simply heaven on earth, only improved by one thing… a sticky glorious glaze! Let your imagination go wild and try something different this year when glazing your beautiful Hellers ham! I have included a few family favourite recipes that you can’t lose with but be daring and try something new this year!
Pomegranate and Orange Mustard glaze
  • ½ cup pomegranate molasses, 3 tbsp Dijon
  • 1 orange zest and juice, ½ lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • Mix altogether in a bowl and allow time to infuse flavours

 

Spiced Canadian Maple glaze
  • 1 cup Canadian maple syrup, ¼ cup French mustard
  • 2 tsp cinnamon, 2 tsp allspice
  • 2 tsp ground cloves, 1 tsp grated nutmeg
  • 1 tsp sea salt

Mix altogether in a bowl and allow time to infuse flavours

 

French Bonne Maman Orange Marmalade glaze
  • ½ cup Bonne Maman Orange Marmalade

Apply directly onto ham and finish decorating with cloves.

 

Mexican Summer Fruit glaze

This is based on a beautiful glaze I found in an American cookbook but I have given it a Mexican twist!

  • ½ cup chopped strawberries [plus more for garnish], ½ cup raspberries [plus more for garnish]
  • ½ cup runny honey, 2 lime zest and juice
  • 1 smoked dried chipotle chili [for flavour only], ½ tsp mustard powder
  • ½ cup dried cranberries

Bring everything to a gentle simmer in a medium saucepan for 15 minutes or until thick and syrupy, stirring occasionally. Set to one side for applying in the last 15 minutes of baking.

  • ½ cup raspberry jam [seedless if available]
  • ½ cup cranberry juice
  • ½ cup orange juice

Mix together raspberry jam and cranberry juice, glaze ham and bake. Cover in foil if you are heating all the way through to stop it burning too fast. For the final 10-15 minutes brush the glaze you set aside all over the ham and bake at a high temperature. Allow to rest, garnish with fresh berries and serve the leftover glaze as a condiment.

What you will need
