Ingredients

  • 1 x 4-5 kg boneless leg ham
  • 500g Australian streaky bacon, rind removed, sliced thinly
  • ¾ cup strong black coffee
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander seeds
  • Salt to season

Method

  1. 1.
    Preheat oven to 160°C.
  2. 2.
    Carefully remove the skin from the ham, leaving the fat layer in place.
  3. 3.
    Place the ham on a rack in a baking tray lined with baking paper. Lay the bacon slices over the ham, overlapping the bacon slightly.
  4. 4.
    Combine all other ingredients in a saucepan, simmer to reduce by half or until the mixture becomes sticky.
  5. 5.
    Brush the prepared ham with the coffee glaze and place in preheated oven. Continue to glaze the ham at 10 minutes intervals - the surface of the ham should be sticky and caramelised.
  6. 6.
    Remove from the oven and rest for 10 -15 minutes before carving.
