Cover the ham loosely with foil then cook in the oven for 25 minutes per 450g plus 30 minutes over removing the foil after the first 45 minutes.
Remove from the oven before your start the final 30 minutes (the over bit) and glaze with your choice of glaze then return to the oven on a clean roasting tin and bake for 30 – 45 minutes more. Remove every 15 minutes to baste with the glaze if needed.
