Place the bacon in a large saucepan along with the bay leaf, peppercorns, vinegar and onion and cover with cold water. Put a lid on the saucepan and bring to the boil.

Then reduce the heat and gently simmer for about an hour - allow 20 minutes per ½ kg. When the bacon is cooked take it out of the saucepan and place in a roasting tin lined with parchment paper or tin foil.

Heat the oven to Gas Mark 7, 220°C (425°F). Allow the bacon to cool while you make the glaze. In a small bowl mix together the mustard, orange zest, soy sauce, cider vinegar, ginger and brown sugar.

Remove the rind from the joint and score the exposed fat with a sharp knife to form a diamond pattern. Spread the mixture over the joint.

Place it in the oven for 20-25 minutes, basting with the glaze a couple of times until the fat is crisp and golden.
