Miso Apple Glazed Ham

Recipe By Courtney Roulston, Farm to Fork


  • 1 whole ham (around 6 kg)
  • 2 tbs white miso paste 
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, grated 
  • ¾ cup cloudy apple juice 
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup 
  • 2 tbs apple cider vinegar 
  • 2 large apples, sliced into 3 mm rings on a mandolin across the core 
  • ¼ cup whole cloves


  • Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees (C). 
  • Remove the skin from the ham, leaving a layer of fat intact. Place the skin facing down on the bottom of a large baking tray.
  • Whisk the miso, ginger, apple juice, maple syrup and apple cider vinegar together in a bowl until smooth. 
  • Cover the outside of the ham with sliced apple, holding them in place with a clove spiked through the middle.
  • Using a pastry brush, cover the apple in around 1/3 of the glaze.
  • Place the ham into a baking tray then bake for 1.5-2 hours, basting with the reserve glaze every 20 minutes, until all the glaze has been used and the ham has a golden sticky coating all over it.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to rest before serving and slicing.
