  • 1/4 cup butter 60g
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger finely minced
  • 1/4 cup gold sweetener I use Sukrin Gold
  • Zest and juice of 1 blood orange or navel orange
  • 1/4 cup Chicken Bone Broth 60g
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos 36g
  • 5-6 kg Easy Carve Ham
  • Cloves for decorating



  • Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a large roasting pan with baking paper.
  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan over moderate heat. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer the glaze until it reduces to a thick silky consistency. Set aside.
  • Run a small sharp knife over the flap of skin on the ham. Using your fingers, separate skin from fat. Remove and discard skin. Lightly score the ham all over in a diamond pattern.
  • Brush the ham with the glaze and bake for 30-40 minutes (depending on the size of the ham increase the time) basting every 10-15 minutes with the glaze.
  • Remove the ham from oven and decorate with cloves. Brush with the glaze and bake a further 20-30 minutes. Rest ham for 20 minutes before slicing and serving.


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a large roasting pan with baking paper.
  • Place the butter into the mixer; heat 3 min/100°C/speed 2. Add the remaining ingredients and cook 5 min/110 ̊C/speed 1. Follow from Step 3 above.


Baked ham is best consumed within 4 days of storing in the fridge.
The ham can be sliced or cut into large pieces and kept frozen.
Any sweetener can be used in this recipe but remember to adjust according to the sweetness level of the sweetener. I use Sukrin Gold which is of a similar sweetness to brown sugar. Taste the sauce and adjust the seasoning to adjust the level of sweetness.
I use blood oranges in this recipe but any orange of choice can be used.
For the images you see I have used a slightly larger ham at 7kg that has only the bone at the end of the ham.
