INGREDIENTS

5 lbs – Boneless leg ham

2 packs – Streaky bacon

1 cup – Fresh sorrel

2 teaspoons – Spicy sorrel chutney

1 tablespoon – Pimento crushed

½ teaspoon – Cloves crushed

1 cup – Unsweetened sorrel juice

½ cup – Honey

STEPS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Wrap the ham completely in two to three layers of foil
  3. Place the wrapped ham in a baking dish half filled with water and warm in the oven; 6 minutes per pound
  4. In a saucepan, make a rich sauce using the fresh sorrel, sorrel chutney, sorrel juice, honey, pimento and cloves
  5. Once the sauce is slightly thick, remove it from the heat and set aside
  6. Remove the ham from the oven
  7. Remove the foil and wrap completely in bacon, pinning with toothpicks to secure
  8. Place in a 470 degree oven to cook the bacon until almost golden; 8-10 minutes
  9. Pour the sorrel glaze over the ham and put back in the oven for another 5 minutes
  10. When the bacon is crispy and the sauce is thick, remove from the oven and serve

TIPS

  1. Make sure the ham is completely defrosted before warming
  2. Boneless fully cooked hams are very easy to dry out; do not over cook
  3. A 5-pound boneless ham will take about thirty minutes to warm all the way through to the centre
