Gingerglazed Ham

This recipe takes minutes to prepare and is no work at all but the result is good enough for a Christmas dinner. I cannot take the credit here. The recipe comes from my all time favorite "DG" Nigella Lawson. I suggest you read my summary and then click the link at the bottom of the post to watch a 3 minute youtube video on how it is done. 

Ham (I prefer smoked)
lots of dry gingerale (2-7 liters depending on size of ham)
Hot English Mustard (like Grey Poupon in USA) 2 tablespoons
Ginger Preserves (250g or 9 ounces), if you cant find any use orange marmalade & add a teaspoon of dry ground ginger
dark brown sugar (100 grams or 3.5 ounces)
teaspoon of cloves

1. First, rinse off the ham and place in a large pot. Pour the gingerale into the pot until the ham is fully covered and bring to a boil. Once bubbling reduce heat slightly and cover. It needs to bubble for 20 minutes per 500grams (20 minutes per pound).
2. When ham is nearly done boiling, heat oven to 220C (390 F) (remember some ovens, like mine are very hot so you might need to lower the temperature by 10 - 20 degrees). GET TO KNOW YOUR OVEN. ;)  
3. In a bowl combine mustard, preserves, brown sugar and cloves. Mix well. 
4. When ham is done place on foil lined oven tray and remove most of the fat. Pour the glaze over the ham and pop in the oven for 20 minutes. This is delicious cold or hot. 

FOIL LINED TRAY IS ESSENTIAL because the glaze will stick to your tray.
