A very simple, but totally delicious answer to glazing a ham. Make it your centrepiece this Christmas...or any other time of year for that matter. Bake ham for a time according to its size. 20 minutes per 450 grams is a good guide, but the best guide is keeping an eye on it to see when the fat has a slightly charred, sticky, caramelized look.
