Truffle Honey Glazed Ham

Written by , Posted in News

Served traditionally at Christmas, we couldn’t help but get ahead of ourselves when we saw the colour and juices exploding in this video.  Mouthwatering, I think so!  Good things come to those who wait, but why wait until Christmas!?


  • 5k of green gammon
  • 10 whole peppercorns
  • 3 carrots
  • 3 spring onions
  • 1 white onion
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 tablespoons of wholegrain mustard
  • 240g Truffle Hunter white truffle honey
  • Teaspoon of cider vinegar
  • 20 cloves

Step 1
Place the gammon in cold water, bring to the boil and drain (leave the gammon in the pan).  Cover the gammon with the cold water and add the peppercorns, bay leaves, chopped carrots and onions.  Simmer for an hour and leave to cool in the pan for 30 minutes.

Step 2
Whilst the ham is cooking, mix the white truffle honey, cider vinegar and wholegrain mustard in a bowl.  Remove the ham and peel away any skin leaving the layer of fat intact.  Score the fat by making a criss-cross pattern with a sharp knife.  Stud each square of fat with a single clove.

Step 3
Brush the ham liberally with the white truffle honey mixture, place in a roasting tray and bake in a 170C preheated oven for 60 minutes.

Step 4
Remove the ham from the over and brush liberally with the remaining mixture.  Return to the oven, basting and brushing the ham with the white truffle mixture every 20 minutes.  Brush and baste one last time.  Carve and enjoy.
