Ingredients
 

For the Glazed Ham

  • 4.5 kg cooked, smoked ham
  • 200 g brown sugar
  • 200 g honey
  • 100 ml cider or apple vinegar
  • the juice from a jar of cherries, reserve the cherries for the compote
  • 100 ml Kirsch
  • freshly milled black pepper
  • 1 tangerine

For the Christmas Compote

  • 2 small onions, chopped
  • 75 g speck (pancetta or bacon will also work), diced
  • skin of one tangerine, finely diced
  • 280 g cranberry sauce, (2 x 140g jars)
  • 1 jar cherries, (see above)
  • 10 cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • splash of cider or apple vinegar
  • 100 water

Instructions
 

  • Take a sharp knife and score the rind of the ham all over.

For the glaze

  • Mix together the brown sugar, honey, cider vinegar, cherry juice, and kirsch season with pepper and whisk together to combine.
  • Pour over the ham and squeeze over the juice of one of the tangerines. 
  • Place in the oven at 180c for an hour and 30 minutes, basting the ham every 30 minutes - be very careful while doing this as the sugary glaze will get very hot!  

For the Christmas Compote

  • Sauté the onion with the speck and soften for a couple of minutes. Add the finely chopped tangerine rind to the pan.
  • Add the jars of cranberry sauce, cherries, cloves, cinnamon stick, vinegar and a little water.
  • Season with salt and pepper and cook over medium heat for roughly 20 minutes.
  • Serve the Kirsch & honey glazed ham with the Christmas compote.
