  • 1 cup Beechworth Honey Traditional Honey
  • 1/2 cup cranberry sauce
  • 2 tbsp dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • Preheat your oven to 180°C.
  • In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the Beechworth Honey, cranberry sauce, dried cranberries, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground cloves, and black pepper. Stir well and simmer for about 10-15 minutes until the glaze thickens.
  • While the glaze is simmering, score the surface of the ham to create crosshatch shapes with a sharp knife.
