In a large deep sided roasting dish add the bay leaf, onion and black pepper and the ham fill the pan a quarter of the way with water.

Cover with tin foil and cook for 20 mins per 450g of meat.

Mix all the glaze ingredients together in a bowl.

Remove from oven and drain away juice, leave to cool and carefully peel off skin. Score the layer of fat left behind in a diagonal direction.

Pour over the glaze and leave to marinate for an hour continually basting throughout the hour.
