Gingerly sweet: Our 2022 ham glaze
Look at that glaze 😍

Sometimes it's like we have a list of flavours all over the wall, throw a few darts and see what it hits. The flavours in this glaze might not be what you expect, and the glaze itself hits quite sweet, but once on the ham and baked, it just sort of balances out and works. The flavours all complement each other nicely, and there's no competition on your palate - you can taste each element in its own right but they all get along like they've known each other since primary school.

Miso, Apple & Ginger Glaze

Makes enough for a 4-5kg ham



  1. Mix all ingredients together in a saucepan over medium heat. Gently simmer until the brown sugar is dissolved, around 4-5 minutes.
  2. Brush about a third of the glaze over your prepared ham before it goes in the oven, and the repeat your glaze application at 20 min intervals until you have built up a good glossy coverage.
  3. Done.

Loaded Christmas* Potatoes
*If you’re reading this at any other time of year, please refer to this recipe as ‘Loaded Potatoes’. While absolutely mouth-wateringly yum, there’s really nothing especially festive about these, aside from the treat yo’self vibes they give off. We like them on our table as an alternative to boring b…
Apple & Walnut Salad
We created this salad to complement the apple flavours in our 2022 Christmas Ham. With apple slices and the delicious Chantal Organics Apple Syrup (a new to us find that we’re suddenly adding to everything) in the dressing, you can’t go wrong with this crunchy, fresh and delightful salad. Ingredie…
Beetroot & Sourdough Panzanella
If you want something a bit different on your Christmas table, may we suggest this hearty and colourful panzanella salad. A few special ingredients worthy of a Christmas spread, this salad would be perfect on a table with a traditional roast, but fits in just as nicely on our more
Wedgie ’lad
(That’s a wedge salad, in case you were wondering). We reckon wedge salads are brilliant. Firstly, they make a star of the iceberg lettuce - the somewhat underrated black sheep of the lettuce fam. And secondly, they are so simple to make. Whether you go with a classic dressing and
