Roast Leg of Ham

Nuvita Biscuits

Ham studded with cloves, glazed with honey and mustard and roasted to lock in the sweet and spicy flavour


4-5 kg smoked leg of ham

5-6 cinnamon sticks

5-6 bay leaves

4-5 black cardamoms


mustard – to taste

honey – to cover ham

15-20 cloves

2-3 tsp bread crumbs

3-4 pineapple slices

pineapple juice (optional)


Make sure you order the smoked leg of ham with bone and fatty skin 3-4 days before cooking.

Soak the leg of ham in water, add cinnamons, bay leaves and black cardamoms.

Cover and cook it on a slow fire for 4-5 hours.

Once tender, remove from water and cut the skin off the meat.

Coat it with the mustard, honey and bread crumbs.

Pin all the cloves in the meat and top it with the pineapple slices.

Roast the ham in a pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes.

For the gravy, use the water in which the ham was boiled.

Boil it further to thicken and add some pineapple juice.

Slice the ham, pour the gravy on top and serve hot.

    This is this person’s first time out on his own and he’s cooking for himself( and sometimes his girlfriend). He eats out a lot, but this can get expensive,so I would like to send him some easy to make recipes. Oh and he’s on a tight budget,too. Any meal. Thank you.
