You will need:

  • 1 kg smoked ham
  • water, for boiling ham
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1.5 tbsp dijon mustard


  1. Add ham into the large pot, add water to cover the ham. Bring to a boil slowly. Remove foam or scum from the surface and simmer slightly under the lid for approx—1 hour. Turn off the heat and leave the ham in the pot until glazed.
  2. While the ham is simmering, stir together the sugar and mustard. Whisk until you have a smooth paste.
  3. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celcius. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
  4. Carefully remove ham from the cooking liquid and discard the liquid. Place ham on the prepared baking sheet. Rub the outside of the ham with half of the sugar-mustard mixture.
  5. Roast for 15 minutes, then add half of the sugar-mustard mixture and roast for additional 15 minutes. Roast the ham until the internal temperature reaches 60 degrees Celcius.
  6. Remove ham from the oven and let rest for 15 minutes before slicing. Transfer ham to a cutting board and carve against the grain.
