Blackberry Christmas Ham

CHRISTMAS HAM! Do you guys LOVE a Christmas ham like me? I swear, they are the most satisfying thing to make EVER becuase they just get more and more beautiful as it comes out the oven haha. I've partnered with @woolworthsau for this recipe and got my SAME DAY DELIVERY groceries and I was so pumped haha! If you order before 1pm in the month of december and have a minimum spend of $50, you can get your groceries the same day! Makes that Christmas shopping much easier when it can come to you, instead of you trying to find a park for an hour am i righttttt!! haha. MAKE THIS HAM THIS CHRISTMAS!

6-8kg leg ham, bone in
2 tablespoons fresh ginger, finely grated
1 cup blackberry jam
1⁄2 cup soy sauce
2-3 star anise
1 small chilli, sliced
1⁄2 cup apple juice
Olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 150C.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the ham. Remove the skin by sliding your fingers between the rind and the fat. You want to keep some of the fat, so peel back the skin carefully.
  3. Score the fat in a criss-cross pattern down, but try not to go any deeper than the fat layer. Place onto a lined baking tray, lay flat side down.
  4. In a small pot, add ginger and chilli with a small splash of olive oil over a medium heat. Cook for one minute before adding black berry jam, soy sauce, star anise and apple juice . Bring ingredients to a simmer for10 minutes.
  5. Generously brush the ham all over with glaze and bake for 2 1/2 hours, brushing with more glaze every 30 minutes.
  6. Remove the ham from the oven and carve.
