Brown Sugar and Passion Fruit Glazed Ham Recipe



  • Oven

  • Saucepan


  • 6 lbs smoked ham leg bone-in

  • Passion fruit pulp (juice) or pineapple juice

  • Cloves

  • Passion Fruit Glazed

  • 2/3 cup brown sugar

  • 4 slices fresh ginger

  • 5 passion fruit (halved)

  • 3 small oranges (juiced)

  • 1/4 cup dark rum




Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove all packaging materials, including the mesh and place the ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.
Add 3 cups of water to a pan and cover tightly with aluminium foil and steam for 45 minutes.

For the glaze

Scoop passion fruit pulp or pineapple juice into a measuring jug (you’ll need 3/4 cup pulp). Squeeze juice from one orange. Stir pulp or juice, 1/2 cup orange juice, sugar, ginger, and rum in a small saucepan over low heat until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat and strain, pressing firmly with the back of a spoon to extract one cup of liquid.
Remove skin and excess fat. Use a sharp knife, cut slits in a cross-check pattern, add cloves as you like, and brush with a little passion fruit glaze.
Return to the oven. Heat 20 to 25 minutes per pound. Glaze every 15 minutes, or until golden and enjoy.
