glazed-bacon-joint1

Serves 4
Prep Time 5 mins
Cooking Time 1 hr 20 mins
Ingredients

  • Ham joint 625g/1lb 6oz (off the bone)
  • 2 ½ litres Coca Cola (see Cook’s tips)
  • 1 Dsp Honey
  • ¼ Tsp Mustard powder
  • ½ Tsp Dark brown soft sugar

Method

  • Place the ham in a large heavy saucepan (See Cook’s tips)
  • Pour over the Coca Cola until ham is completely covered
  • Bring to the boil
  • Skim off scum as it comes to the boil
  • Cover, but leave a slight gap for steam to escape and simmer for 1 hour 5 minutes
  • Either leave the ham to cool in the Cola or take out and cool on a plate
  • When ham has cooled carefully cut off the skin to expose the fat
  • Use a sharp knife and score diagonally to make a diamond pattern
  • Put ham into a foil container, ( See Cook’s tips) or foil lined baking tin
  • Brush the honey over the scored fat
  • Mix the sugar and mustard together and pat over the honey
  • Cook in a preheated oven 240°C/475°F/Gas mark 9 for 10 minutes
  • Take out and baste, then cook for another 5 minutes until glaze is bubbling
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly, then carve.

Cook's tips

  • Use the normal Coca Cola, not the diet or Zero
  • You can use a saucepan to accommodate the size of ham your cooking, and use more or less Coca Cola, just make sure the ham is covered by the liquid
  • I use the freezer foil containers
  • The amount of glaze ingredients in this recipe are to cover a small joint, just double or triple for a larger one, the flavour will remain the same

Equipment

  • Large heavy saucepan with lid
  • Foil container, or foil lined tin

Shopping List

  • Ham joint 625g/1lb 6oz (off the bone)
  • 2 ½ litres Coca Cola
  • 1 Dsp Honey
  • ¼ Tsp Mustard powder
  • ½ Tsp Dark brown soft sugar
