Grapefruit Glazed Ham Recipe


  • 1 gammon joint

  • 1 pint cider

  • 2 chopped carrots

  • 2 onions studded with cloves

  • 4 bay leaves

  • 2 cloves of garlic

  • 2 tbsp brown sugar

  • 12 peppercorns

  • whole cloves

  • 2 tbsp The Cherry Tree Pink Grapefruit Marmalade

  • 1 lemon


  • Soak a gammon joint overnight. Drain and discard the water and pat the gammon dry. Place the gammon in a large pan and then pour over a pint of cider and enough water to cover the joint.

  • Add 2 chopped carrots, 2 onions studded with cloves, 4 bay leaves, 2 cloves of garlic, 2 tbsp brown sugar and 12 peppercorns to the pan. Bring to the boil then reduce the heat and gently simmer for 3 - 3½ hours. Skim off any scum during the cooking. When cooked, remove the ham from the pan and place in a roasting tin. Let it cool slightly and then peel away the skin.

To Glaze:

  • Preheat the oven 190℃/375℉/Gas 5. Score diamond shapes on the fat and stud each diamond with a clove.

  • Heat 2 tbsp of The Cherry Tree Pink Grapefruit Marmalade and the juice of half a lemon in a pan for a few minutes until it thickens to a sticky glaze.

  • Brush the marmalade glaze over the surface of the ham.

  • Bake in the oven for 30 minutes until the glaze has set.
