How to make it

  • Put ham in large roasting pan, fat-side up
  • Using a sharp knife, score ham with cuts across skin, about 2-inches apart, 1/2-inch deep
  • Cut diagonally down the slashes to form a diamond pattern
  • Season ham with freshly ground pepper
  • Chop about 8 sage leaves and put in bowl
  • Mix with olive oil to make paste
  • Rub sage oil all over ham, getting flavor into all slits
  • Bake ham for about 2-3 hours at 325 OR 350 degrees (be sure to watch, so that the glaze is not browning too fast)
  • I made this immediately after I put ham in oven
  • Place saucepan over medium heat
  • Add chunks of butter, thinly sliced tangerines, tangerine juice, brown sugar, water, spices
  • Slowly cook down to syrupy glaze
  • This should take about 30 to 40 minutes
  • After ham has been cooking for about 1 hour
  • You may want to remove ham from oven to pour tangerine glaze (including the pieces of fruit) all over ham
  • Scatter remaining sage leaves on top of ham
  • Place ham back in oven, continue to cook , basting with juices every 30 minutes
  • Ham is done when it is heated through completely and the glaze glistens
  • *If using carrots, scatter them around ham and coat in tangerine glaze
  • Cook until the carrots are tender and ham is dark and crisp
  • Ham should glisten with the sugary glaze
  • Set ham on cutting board and let rest before carving
  • If cooking carrots with ham, serve carrots and tangerine glaze on the side, separately
