It is a ham that is glazed with orange and honey and is cooked in the oven until the outside becomes crisp. Another peculiarity is the necessary presence of cloves which in cooking and at rest give the glazed ham a truly unique flavor and smell.
The glaze can also be prepared by mixing honey with:
With a potato peeler remove the orange peel being careful not to take away the white part then set aside. Squeeze the orange by removing the seeds.
Prepare the glaze by mixing honey, two tablespoons of orange juice, cinnamon and cloves powder and set aside.
Cook the ham in boiling water with 2 bay leaves for about 1 hour then take it out of the pan, remove the surface fat from the ham and cut on the surface of the incisions using a sharp knife. Place the whole cloves on the outside of the ham.
Transfer the ham to an oven pan and cook at 180 degrees for 30 minutes. The last 20 minutes of cooking spread the surface of the ham with the glaze prepared before. Remove from the oven, lay the orange strips on the surface and serve.
Preparation time: 2 hours
How to make incisions on ham
Using a sharp knife, make superficial incisions on the skin of the ham with a maximum depth of 0.5 cm and at a distance of about 1 cm from each other. If possible, make diamond-shaped incisions for an optical impact effect.
The Cutting Of The Ham
At the time of cutting, the ham must be placed on a hard surface (a plate is not good) and must be cut using a long and sharp knife. It is necessary to make a clean cut in order to obtain homogeneous slices, which include both the meat and the external crust.
