"Hams and pheasants were hanging from the ceiling"

We've made it to Hagrid's Hut which means there's more treats waiting for us! First up my twist on glazed ham


This Honey Glazed Ham recipe is the perfect way to make this much loved roast at home. I'll walk you through how to flavour your joint before seasoning and roasting to perfection so you get as much juice and flavour in each and every bite!


Hagrid's Honey Glazed Ham Ingredients:

(serves 6-8)

  • 1 unsmoked boneless gammon joint

  • 1 red onion

  • 2 carrots

  • 1 stick of celery

  • 2-3 cloves of garlic

  • 2 bay leaves

  • 1 tsp black peppercorns

  • 1-2 cinnamon sticks

  • 2 star anise

  • 100g muscovado sugar

  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

  • 100g honey

  • handful of cloves

Hagrid's Honey Glazed Ham Recipe Method:

  1. To begin, prepare the vegetables for the broth by roughly chopping the carrots, onions, celery and garlic.

  2. Add the vegetables and gammon joint to a large saucepan and then pour in cold water until the gammon is submerged. Season with salt, pepper, bay leaves, cinnamon sticks and star anise and then bring up to the boil.

  3. As it begins to bubble, skim off any scum that comes up to the top and then allow to simmer for 30 minutes.

  4. For the honey glaze, add the sugar, balsamic vinegar and honey into a bowl and mix well.

  5. Remove the ham from the saucepan and allow to cool slightly. Once cool enough to handle, turn fat side up and then use a sharp knife to remove the upper hard layer of fat. Score the remaining fat creating a diamond pattern across the ham (I've also carved some hidden lightning bolts in mine!)

  6. Generously cover the ham with the glaze and then press the cloves into the fat layer too.

  7. Place the boiled vegetables into the bottom of a roasting tray and then add the ham join on top. Bake at 180c for 30 minutes. Once it begins to caramelise, remove from the oven and pour over the remaining glaze. Bake for another 15 minutes.

  8. Allow to stand for 10 minutes before carving. This honey-glazed ham recipe can be enjoyed hot or cold

Thanks Hagrid! This ham recipe is sure to go down a treat!
