  1. Place the apple juice, apple cider, maple syrup, sugar, mustard, vinegar, cloves, bay leaves and sage in a large saucepan over high heat. 
  2. Bring to the boil and cook for 30 minutes or until reduced and syrupy. Strain the glaze, discarding the solids. Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F).
  3. Place the ham, top-side down, into a deep-sided roasting dish and wrap the hock with non-stick baking paper and aluminium foil. 
  4. Pour the glaze over the ham and cook for 1 hour. Remove from the oven, turn the ham over and cook for a further 30 minutes or until dark golden brown and sticky. 
  5. Remove the ham from the oven and transfer to a serving platter. Spoon the remaining glaze over the ham to serve. Serves 12.

+ Use a sharp knife to score the skin around the hock before using your fingers to gently remove the skin from the ham. Trim any excess fat.
