The chef recommended simmering the ham for around an hour and a half and then leaving it to rest.
Once it has reached room temperature, James advised taking it out of the pan and, after taking the string around it off, cut across the meat diagonally using a sharp knife.
James then took a few cloves and placed them in the crisscrosses that he had just made with the knife.
Then, James placed the ham in an oven tray and sliced an orange and lemon before adding them into the tray too.
He also put in some star anises and cinnamon sticks again, for added flavour.
After adding a touch of water to the ham, which James said ensures that it doesn't burn, he took a jar of marmalade and used a spoon to cover the top of the meat in the jam.
James set the oven to 200 degrees and placed the tray inside.
James recommended cooking the ham and the accompanying ingredients for 30 to 40 minutes.
The chef showed viewers a piece of ham he had already cooked, with the marmalade glazed perfectly on top.
