WITH NEW Year’s resolutions quickly<br />

approaching, there’s no better time to<br />

On March 22, the Les Mills City2Surf<br />

will celebrate its 46th running and as<br />

always will have an option for all types<br />

of fitness levels with a 14km and 6km<br />

for a massive finish at Ferrymead Playing<br />

Fields where there will be plenty of<br />

entertainment and prizes on offer.<br />

“The Les Mills City2Surf gives<br />

everyone the outlet to do something for<br />

themselves. Challenge yourself to the<br />

14km distance or give yourself a first test<br />

and try to finish the 6km fun run,” said<br />

event manager Jon Holmes.<br />

“It doesn’t matter who you are or where<br />

you’ve come from, running/jogging/<br />

walking the Les Mills City2Surf is the<br />

most welcoming and achievable thing you<br />

can do in 2020,” he said.<br />

Bus lane project ‘a great idea’<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

BUSINESS OWNER Lucas<br />

Kelly says the $2.5 million<br />

priority bus lane project on<br />

Main North Rd will be a good<br />

thing for the area.<br />

The construction between<br />

Winston Ave<br />

and Sawyers<br />

Arms Rd is<br />

due to begin in<br />

early January,<br />

but there<br />

have been<br />

concerns from<br />

Lucas Kelly<br />

businesses<br />

in the area<br />

because of the removal of onstreet<br />

parking and over the time<br />

it will take to implement the<br />

changes.<br />

But Mr Kelly, who owns The<br />

Barber Lounge said: “We should<br />

see it as a positive thing. If it’s<br />

going to lessen the congestion<br />

and encourage people to take<br />

the bus more often, then I think<br />

it’s a great idea.”<br />

The works are expected to<br />

take six months to complete,<br />

in a bid to reduce congestion<br />

on one of the busiest streets in<br />

Christchurch.<br />

There are currently 520 buses<br />

per day that operate through<br />

this section on Main North Rd.<br />

One bus can carry 50 passengers<br />

at a time, creating the potential<br />

for 26,000 people movements<br />

each way.<br />

Mr Kelly believed people<br />

should be patient because the<br />

new bus lanes would benefit<br />

everyone in the long run.<br />

“Yes it’s going to take six<br />

months to complete, but we<br />

should be patient. We don’t<br />

think it’ll affect our business,<br />

but we should focus on<br />

improvement, not duration,” he<br />

said.<br />

A number of businesses on<br />

Main North Rd would not talk<br />

to Nor’West <strong>News</strong> about the<br />

changes.<br />

The city council’s contractor,<br />

CityCare, will begin installing<br />

northbound bus lanes in<br />

early January, along with layout<br />

changes at the Northlands<br />

Shopping Centre entrance and<br />

the installation of new traffic<br />

BUSY: The plan<br />

showing the<br />

new priority bus<br />

lanes that will be<br />

installed along<br />

Main North Rd.<br />

​<br />

lights at the Main North Rd and<br />

Grassmere St intersection.<br />

City council transport<br />

planning and delivery manager<br />

Lynette Ellis said the project<br />

will improve the reliability<br />

of travel times for public<br />

transport.<br />

“It’s one of the busiest streets<br />

in Christchurch and carries high<br />

volumes of buses taking people<br />

between the city centre and the<br />

northern suburbs.”<br />

In Brief<br />

MAJOR PRIZE<br />

The Greater Hornby Residents’<br />

Association Facebook page is<br />

soon set to reach 4000 likes. The<br />

association has teamed up with<br />

NZV8 Hot Laps to giveaway to a<br />

prizewinner three laps of Mike<br />

Pero Motorsport Park Raceway<br />

in a V8 Ford or Holden. All<br />

those that like the page once it has<br />

reached 4000 likes will go in the<br />

draw.<br />

NO STOPPING RESTRICTIONS<br />

No stopping restrictions will be<br />

placed on Bartlett St in Riccarton.<br />

The restrictions are to improve<br />

visibility for road users when<br />

exiting driveways in the bend and<br />

were approved at the Halswell-<br />

Hornby-Riccarton Community<br />

Board meeting on Tuesday.<br />

BUS STOP UPGRADES<br />

A number of bus stop upgrades<br />

will be made to the bus stop<br />

on Halswell Rd. The Halswell-<br />

Hornby-Riccarton Community<br />

Board has approved for the bus<br />

stop on 286 Halswell Rd to be<br />

relocated to 278/280 Halswell<br />

Rd. A bus shelter will also be<br />

installed beside 278 Halswell Rd<br />

and the existing outbound bus<br />

stop opposite 284/286 will be<br />

marked.<br />

Cutting a path through to a new direction<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

TRANSFORMATION: Barber Zarian Taungahihifo has gone from mixing with the wrong crowd to<br />

claiming a top award at the New Zealand Association of Registered Hairdressers competition.<br />

PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN<br />

GROWING UP, Zarian<br />

Taungahihifo never experienced<br />

being in the spotlight.<br />

The 19-year-old encountered<br />

issues many young people of<br />

today commonly face – a lack of<br />

direction after high school or the<br />

discovery of one’s identity and<br />

place in the world.<br />

Rubbing shoulders with<br />

the “wrong crowd” pulled Mr<br />

Taungahihifo down a dangerous<br />

path of drugs and delinquency<br />

at a young age, but after a sitdown<br />

with his father, he decided<br />

enough was enough.<br />

“One day I sat down with my<br />

dad and evaluated where I was<br />

at, and nothing positive was happening.<br />

So we started looking for<br />

other options,” he said.<br />

He undertook work experience<br />

at The Barber Lounge for a few<br />

months before being offered<br />

an apprenticeship through the<br />

Ministry of Social Development’s<br />

Mana and Mahi programme,<br />

designed to help young people<br />

acquire valuable qualifications<br />

and skills.<br />

It was not long before he tasted<br />

success, competing at the New<br />

Zealand Association of Registered<br />

Hairdressers competition<br />

at Ara Institute of Canterbury,<br />

which showcased talent from<br />

hairdressers and barbers nationwide<br />

last August.<br />

Said Mr Taungahihifo: “Growing<br />

up my whole life the spotlight<br />

has never been on me, and<br />

to hear my name being called<br />

out for first place was pretty<br />

overwhelming.”<br />

He took out the top prize in<br />

two categories – Men’s En Trend<br />

Classic Barbering: The Fade and<br />

the Ray Astwood Barbering<br />

Award, both in the new talent<br />

category.<br />

He said his proudest<br />

achievement would not have<br />

been possible without the<br />

mentorship and support of his<br />

“family” at The Barber Lounge in<br />

Papanui who welcomed him like<br />

a brother.<br />

“I love life a lot better now.<br />

I’m in a better headspace, in a<br />

better environment and around<br />

positive people who have goals,”<br />

he said.<br />

“Back then I was hanging out<br />

with people who would only put<br />

me in the wrong positions and<br />

didn’t really care about me.”<br />

It has been said that it takes a<br />

village to raise a child, and The<br />

Barber Lounge senior barber<br />

Lucas Kelly felt this to be true.<br />

Mr Kelly and the team were<br />

the driving force behind Mr<br />

Taungahihifo’s success, instilling<br />

in him the Polynesian way of<br />

humility, respect and hospitality.<br />

Said Mr Taungahihifo: “Once<br />

I started working at the lounge,<br />

I learned how to respect myself,<br />

the peers around me and to just<br />

be myself.”<br />

Mr Kelly saw himself in<br />

the 19-year-old when he went<br />

through similar issues in his own<br />

life, fuelling his desire to mentor<br />

the teenager.<br />

“That’s what I identified<br />

in Zarian when I met him,<br />

that he was just a new generation<br />

of what I was, growing up<br />

with similar backgrounds,” he<br />

said.<br />

“Something that stuck out<br />

was if I had someone like me<br />

when I was in my own situation,<br />

I would’ve wished somebody<br />

would help me too.”<br />

in life<br />

Born and bred in Mairehau,<br />

Mr Taungahihifo was in a “tough<br />

place” during school when he was<br />

dealing with the separation of his<br />

parents and being bullied for his<br />

size.<br />

“I was a bit of a bully too as I<br />

got older because I was lacking<br />

self-confidence, so it made me<br />

feel better about myself,” he said.<br />

As much as it was a learning<br />

curve, he believed that in the<br />

future he would become a mentor<br />

for someone else, passing on the<br />

knowledge and experiences that<br />

were shown to him.<br />

Said Mr Taungahihifo: “With<br />

what’s happened to me, I want to<br />

change someone else’s life<br />

too, someone who was in my<br />

position and be like how Lucas is<br />

to me.”<br />

Amongst the pumping<br />

music, buzzing conversations<br />

and warmth of brotherhood<br />

within the walls of The Barber<br />

Lounge, Mr Taungahihifo was<br />

proud of his journey and perseverance.<br />

He advised young people stuck<br />

in a difficult situation to surround<br />

themselves with positive<br />

people and to take a chance on<br />

something new.<br />

“Don’t be scared, I was, but<br />

once you step through that door<br />

of being scared, the sooner you<br />

step outside your comfort zone,”<br />

WARMTH: The Barber<br />

Lounge in Papanui fosters<br />

a brotherhood that includes<br />

Zarian Taungahihifo.<br />

he said.<br />

From public speaking, finishing<br />

his qualification, entering<br />

next year’s NZARH competition<br />

and attending industry awards<br />

– 2020 will prove to be a big year<br />

for Mr Taungahihifo.<br />

“In a short space of time, a lot<br />

has changed and it’s only going to<br />

go up from here.”<br />

Gillies overcome with award<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

JENNY GILLIES is no stranger<br />

to receiving awards in the<br />

costume-making industry.<br />

And she has now been<br />

recognised with a Christchurch<br />

Civic Award.<br />

For 25 years, the costumemaker<br />

has helped foster<br />

Christchurch’s “garden city”<br />

image through her fabric floral<br />

creations, both in the city and<br />

abroad.<br />

Mrs Gillies was overcome<br />

with the news of her nomination.<br />

“It felt pretty fantastic; I was<br />

quite overcome when I found<br />

out about it,” she said.<br />

“To me, it’s very important,<br />

especially after everything the<br />

city has gone through in the last<br />

10 years.”<br />

The Civic Awards are presented<br />

each year by the city<br />

council and are awarded to 10<br />

groups or individuals who have<br />

gone above and beyond to make<br />

a difference in their community.<br />

Civic Awards committee chair<br />

councillor Yani Johanson said<br />

the awards acknowledge those<br />

who generously gave their time<br />

and energy to benefit others.<br />

“The groups and individuals<br />

who are receiving awards<br />

have worked tirelessly over<br />

many years to make a positive<br />

difference and we owe them<br />

a debt of gratitude,” said Cr<br />

Johanson.<br />

Nestled in the heart of the<br />

city, Mrs Gillies’ Enchanted<br />

Garden was a popular hot-spot<br />

for tourists and locals alike, with<br />

wearable works inspired by the<br />

surroundings of the Botanic<br />

Gardens.<br />

She has always had a keen interest<br />

in flowers, gardening and<br />

sewing which has further grown<br />

her passion in the costumemaking<br />

industry, creating works<br />

of art to bring joy to others.<br />

Said Mrs Gillies: “It’s also a<br />

haven for people that have been<br />

in the hospital getting treatment,<br />

we’ve found that it’s very<br />

therapeutic for them here.”<br />

Born and bred in Canterbury,<br />

her pride for the city remained<br />

unshaken.<br />

“For me, this is quite<br />

special and I’m very proud<br />

of Christchurch – even when<br />

rattled and shaken it doesn’t<br />

matter, I love it here.”<br />

Rangi Ruru’s high-achieving school<br />

leavers presented with awards<br />

DESCRIBED AS a young<br />

woman of integrity, humility<br />

and intelligence, Emily Davy is<br />

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School’s Dux<br />

for <strong>2019</strong>.<br />

Announced at last week’s endof-year<br />

prize-giving in front of a<br />

packed audience at Christchurch<br />

Town Hall, school principal Dr<br />

Sandra Hastie said Ms Davy<br />

demonstrated an outlook beyond<br />

her years and lead by example.<br />

“Emily has repeatedly gained<br />

Elite Academic Colours, however,<br />

this is only one of her exceptional<br />

attributes with music,<br />

future problem solving, service<br />

and sustainability tracking<br />

alongside,” said Dr Hastie.<br />

“This year she is ranked at<br />

or near the top in all six of her<br />

subjects. We know that behind<br />

the successes are hours of commitment<br />

and plain hard work<br />

that contribute to this.”<br />

Year 13 student Tulsi Lathia<br />

won the title of Best All-Round<br />

Girl, a highly respected award at<br />

the school.<br />

An entrepreneur at heart, a<br />

humanist, and a self-starter, Dr<br />

Hastie said Ms Lathia lived to<br />

help others which empowered<br />

the people that she was helping.<br />

PRIZE: Year 13 student Tulsi<br />

Lathia was named Best All-<br />

Round Girl at the Rangi Ruru<br />

Girls’ School prize-giving. ​<br />

Said Dr Hastie: “She has a<br />

wonderful, positive attitude.<br />

Tulsi has willingly given many<br />

hours of her time mentoring<br />

younger students, in leadership<br />

roles, in sports and was on the<br />

Service Council.”<br />

In November, Ms Lathia and<br />

her Young Enterprise teammates<br />

dean Angela<br />

Lidstone.<br />

recently launched their unique<br />

cookbook, Spoonful of Spice,<br />

which presented the stories<br />

behind the recipes of refugee and<br />

immigrant women.<br />

Said Ms Lathia on last month’s<br />

cookbook launch: “You need to<br />

persevere to get to your end goal.<br />

It’s not easy, it never will be, and<br />

you just need to keep on trying.”<br />

Rangi Ruru student Amber<br />

Spurway was also named this<br />

year’s Proxime Accessit and received<br />

the Dorothy Bates Trophy<br />

for outstanding potential.<br />

Dr Hastie said she was a mentor<br />

for junior students, and her<br />

passion for learning had seen her<br />

gain 100 per cent of excellence<br />

grades in NCEA Level 2.<br />

“Amber is never willing to<br />

CHRISTCHURCH GIRLS’<br />

High School will have to wait<br />

12 months to be national<br />

cricket champions after<br />

finishing runners-up last week<br />

at Hagley Park and Christ’s<br />

College.<br />

The entire squad will be<br />

back in 12 months time, eager<br />

to go one better after falling at<br />

the final hurdle of the Gillette<br />

Venus Cup.<br />

CGHS went unbeaten<br />

through pool play, including<br />

beating Dunedin’s St Hilda’s,<br />

who knocked them out<br />

last year, to make the final<br />

before falling by 80 runs to<br />

Auckland’s Epsom Girls’<br />

Grammar in the final.<br />

CGHS coach Hannah<br />

Beatson said her team<br />

showed real intensity in the<br />

field throughout, capitalising<br />

on the opportunities they<br />

created.<br />

Opener Casey Liddington<br />

starred with the bat, scoring<br />

<strong>17</strong>4 runs in six innings, laying<br />

the platform for major wins<br />

in the early rounds including<br />

a six-wicket win over St<br />

Matthew’s Collegiate and a<br />

pair of nine wicket wins over<br />

Hutt Valley High School and<br />

Epsom Girls’.<br />

“Our top-order did a great<br />

SO CLOSE: The Christchurch Girls’ High School cricket team finished second at the<br />

Gillette Venus Cup national tournament last week. ​<br />

job, lead by Casey and we<br />

tried to keep that momentum<br />

throughout the three days,”<br />

she said.<br />

In the final, it was a different<br />

story.<br />

“I thought Epsom gained the<br />

momentum in the first over of<br />

the game and never let us get<br />

SPORT<br />

into the game.<br />

“We had a young team this<br />

year and we didn’t have one<br />

year 13 player so it is very<br />

exciting to try to win it all in<br />

2020.”<br />

Beatson has already<br />

organised a warm-up<br />

game against St Hilda’s for<br />

October, a repeat of the first<br />

women’s match ever played<br />

at the well-known ground at<br />

Loburn.<br />

Young ballerina takes<br />

second place in exams<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

FOURTEEN-year-old<br />

ballerina Riley Lyons knew<br />

she would be competing<br />

against dancers much<br />

older than herself at the<br />

New Zealand Association<br />

of Modern Dance annual<br />

examinations last month.<br />

But when she pirouetted<br />

her way into second place<br />

at the scholarship awards<br />

event in Wellington,<br />

against dancers up to year<br />

13, her surprise was an<br />

understatement.<br />

Riley, a year 9 student<br />

at St Andrew’s College<br />

said it felt “surprising but<br />

amazing” to not only be<br />

nominated for the scholarship<br />

prize but to take out<br />

second place.<br />

“I went to the awards<br />

hoping that I might be able<br />

to make the finals, but to<br />

come second was a huge<br />

shock,” she said.<br />

Gaining entry into the<br />

nationwide competition<br />

was not an easy feat as she<br />

had to gain the top ballet<br />

mark in her examinations<br />

and be personally<br />

nominated by an NZAMD<br />

examiner for the prize.<br />

Riley began her ballet<br />

journey when she was just<br />

four-years-old and splits<br />

SUCCESS: Riley Lyons, of St Andrew’s College, was<br />

shocked with her second place at the New Zealand<br />

Association of Modern Dance annual examinations.<br />

her training between Garden<br />

City Dance Academy<br />

and St Andrew’s Ballet<br />

Academy, where she was<br />

nominated for the award.<br />

Subsequently, she was<br />

the only ballet dancer from<br />

Christchurch to attend the<br />

scholarship awards.<br />

She credited her success<br />

to the support from her<br />

family and teachers, hard<br />

work and countless hours<br />

of training. But Riley is<br />

determined to continue<br />

improving and broaden<br />

her knowledge of the dance<br />

world.<br />

“One of my main goals<br />

this year was to be reaccepted<br />

into the associates<br />

programme at the New<br />

Zealand School of Dance<br />

in Wellington for 2020,”<br />

she said.<br />

“Fortunately, I was<br />

accepted and I get to<br />

train intensively with<br />

world-class teachers. It’s<br />

an inspiring place and I’m<br />

very privileged to be a part<br />

of this elite programme.”<br />

Young explorer leads<br />

classmates to the ice<br />

FOLLOWING IN his ancestor’s<br />

footsteps, seven-year-old<br />

Ollie Criglington led his own<br />

expedition to the ice treating<br />

his Cotswold School classmates<br />

to a day at the International<br />

Antarctic Centre.<br />

The year 2 pupil recently<br />

won a “dress as your favourite<br />

explorer” competition at the<br />

ChristchurchNZ Explore Antarctica<br />

fun day, and because of<br />

this, he was able to discover the<br />

wonders of Antarctica with 23 of<br />

his classmates and their parents.<br />

The young explorer represented<br />

the fifth generation of<br />

his family with links to the icy<br />

continent. His great-great grandfather,<br />

William McDonald, was<br />

an able seaman on the Terra<br />

Nova of Robert Falcon Scott’s<br />

last expeditions.<br />

The International Antarctic<br />

Centre general manager Todd<br />

Schmidt said he was “delighted”<br />

to learn of the many connections<br />

that Ollie’s family had with the<br />

ice.<br />

“Ollie is a true Antarctic<br />

ambassador, a wonderful local<br />

example of the way our younger<br />

generation is challenging us all<br />

to do more,” said Mr Schmidt.<br />

Ollie and his classmates were<br />

able to learn about climate<br />

change in Antarctica, the vital<br />

research scientists carried out<br />

and the legacies of explorers<br />

before him.<br />

His great grandfather, Alan,<br />

and grandmother Anne also<br />

have significant links with the<br />

continent, along with Ollie’s<br />

“Uncle Richie,” a field training<br />

instructor who is currently on<br />

his eighth season in Antarctica.<br />

Ollie’s favourite parts about<br />

his visit to the International<br />

Antarctic Centre was riding in<br />

the Hägglund, the Antarctic<br />

storm experience and patting the<br />

Huskies.<br />

He wished to explore<br />

Antarctica one day, working in<br />

the field “just like Uncle Richie.”<br />

FAMILY LINKS:<br />

Ollie Criglington<br />

with his<br />

grandmother,<br />

Anne Hunter,<br />

sister, Emma and<br />

his mother, Sarah<br />

in a Hägglund at<br />

Antarctic Centre. ​<br />

New manager excited<br />

for challenge ahead<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

MEET SMITHS City<br />

Northwood’s newest store<br />

manager: Davin Vaikvee.<br />

Born and raised in Wellington,<br />

he began his Smiths City journey<br />

in 2012 as a manager, relocating<br />

from Lower Hutt, to Invercargill<br />

and now here in Christchurch.<br />

Mr Vaikvee said he was excited<br />

for the challenge ahead, working<br />

in a location that offers customers<br />

choice and competition with a<br />

“community feel about it.”<br />

“I’m proud of my progression<br />

within Smiths City and the support<br />

I’ve received from management,”<br />

he said.<br />

“I’m now the manager of a flagship<br />

store in the city where it all<br />

began over 100 years ago, and I’m<br />

excited at the challenge of providing<br />

home solutions to Northwood<br />

and surrounding communities.”<br />

He had a “typical” kiwi<br />

upbringing, spending plenty of<br />

time in the outdoors - whether it<br />

was at the beach or spending the<br />

summer on the family farm in<br />

the Waikato.<br />

Before he joined the Smiths<br />

City family, he worked in the<br />

food and beverage industry as<br />

a regional manager in the lower<br />

North Island, along with a stint<br />

in Wanaka.<br />

Keeping active is a must for Mr<br />

Vaikvee, especially heading out<br />

of town with his fishing rod in<br />

tow. Being in Canterbury meant<br />

the excitement of catching wild<br />

salmon, something he looked<br />

forward to.<br />

Even though Christchurch was<br />

ideal for its close proximity to<br />

rivers, beaches and back country,<br />

it’s the people he liked the most<br />

about Canterbury.<br />

“I find Cantabrians likeminded<br />

in that they are practical<br />

people and don’t shy away from<br />

a good conversation or offer for<br />

help. They’re great people.”<br />

Tasty Bites<br />

The perfect Xmas<br />

table centerpiece<br />

The most perfect sticky<br />

glaze is slathered all<br />

over this juicy, tender,<br />

baked Brown Sugar<br />

Mustard Glazed Ham,<br />

with crisp edges and an<br />

incredible flavour<br />

Brown Sugar<br />

Mustard-Glazed Ham<br />

Ingredients<br />

4-5kg bone-in fully cooked<br />

ham<br />

½ cup water<br />

½ cup unsalted butter<br />

1 cup brown sugar<br />

½ cup honey<br />

2 tablespoons Dijon<br />

mustard<br />

¼ teaspoon ground<br />

cinnamon<br />

¼ teaspoon ground cloves<br />

4 cloves garlic, smashed<br />

Directions<br />

Preheat the oven to 150<br />

deg C. and arrange a rack<br />

in the lower third. Remove<br />

any plastic packaging or<br />

netting from the ham. Trim<br />

away the rind and discard.<br />

Set the ham aside to rest<br />

at room temperature for<br />

1-2hr.<br />

Line a baking tray or<br />

dish with several sheets of<br />

aluminium foil or baking<br />

paper if you prefer (it will<br />

make clean-up a lot easier).<br />

Remove the rind or skin<br />

of the ham, ensuring you<br />

leave the fat on. Using a<br />

sharp knife score a 2-3cm<br />

wide diamond pattern<br />

(don’t cut more than 5mm<br />

deep) over the entire ham.<br />

Place the ham in the baking<br />

tray; pour ⅓ cup of water<br />

into the base of the pan<br />

and cover the ham with<br />

two pieces of foil or baking<br />

paper and bake for 30min.<br />

Meanwhile, heat the<br />

butter in a small pot or<br />

saucepan over medium<br />

heat until golden browned.<br />

Add in the brown sugar,<br />

honey, mustard, cinnamon<br />

and cloves, stirring to mix<br />

How to remove<br />

ham rind<br />

1. Cut a line through the<br />

skin all around the shank<br />

end.<br />

2. Insert a sharp knife<br />

between the rind and fat<br />

and run it along to detach<br />

the rind.<br />

3. Using your fingers,<br />

gently separate the rind<br />

from the fat, insterting<br />

your hand deeper into the<br />

ham to keep detaching it.<br />

4. Peel off and discard the<br />

rind.<br />

together well until the<br />

brown sugar has completely<br />

dissolved, (about 2min).<br />

Reduce heat to low and<br />

add in the garlic. Allow it to<br />

become fragrant, cooking<br />

for a further minute or two<br />

until the glaze just begins<br />

to simmer, then set it aside<br />

and let cool to lukewarm<br />

(the glaze should be the<br />

consistency of roomtemperature<br />

honey).<br />

After 30min baking time,<br />

carefully remove the ham<br />

from the oven and increase<br />

the oven temperature to<br />

220 deg C. Discard the<br />

foil or parchment paper<br />

and pour ⅓ of the glaze all<br />

over the ham, brushing in<br />

between the cuts to evenly<br />

cover. Return to the oven<br />

and bake uncovered for<br />

15min.<br />

Remove from the oven,<br />

brush with another third<br />

of the glaze and some of<br />

the pan juices, and repeat<br />

again after 15min more<br />

1 2<br />

3 4<br />

minutes of baking until a<br />

dark golden-brown crust<br />

has formed, (about 30min<br />

total). For added depth of<br />

flavour, mix some of the<br />

ham pan juices together<br />

with the glaze in the pot<br />

which will help keep it<br />

runny enough for brushing.<br />

If your crust is still pink<br />

after there suggested baking<br />

time, turn on your broiler<br />

(or oven grill), and allow it<br />

to broil for 2-5min, while<br />

keeping an eye on it so<br />

it doesn’t burn from the<br />

sugar.<br />

Let the ham rest 10-<br />

20min before slicing.<br />

NOTES<br />

If your glaze has been<br />

over simmered and begins<br />

to thicken between each<br />

baste, add some of the<br />

pan juices to it and heat it<br />

up over low heat until it<br />

warms through and is the<br />

consistency of warmed<br />

honey.<br />
