        40 cloves
        Crusty bread and mustard, to serve
        125ml (1/2 cup) maple syrup
        110g (1/2 cup firmly packed) brown sugar

    Ginger and maple-glazed Christmas ham Recipe

        Step 1

        Preheat oven to 160C. To make glaze, place the maple syrup, sugar, apricot nectar, char siu sauce, ginger and star anise in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes or until slightly reduced. Set aside until needed.
        Step 2

        To prepare ham, using a sharp knife, score a zig-zag pattern around the shank (narrow) end of ham. Starting from the wide end, slide your fingers under skin, working them up between the skin and fat, loosening skin as you go. When you reach the scored shank end, gently pull skin back in one piece and reserve to cover ham when storing. Using a sharp knife, score fat at 3cm intervals in a diamond pattern. Stud points of each diamond with cloves.
        Step 3

        Line an oven tray with 2 layers of foil, place ham on top and brush generously with glaze. Roast ham, basting with glaze every 20 minutes, for 1 1/2 hours. Decorate with extra star anise.
        Step 4

        Meanwhile, place the remaining glaze in a small saucepan over medium heat, bring to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes or until thickened. Brush over ham.
        Step 5

        Serve ham with bread and mustard.
