This recipe was adapted from Weinstein & Scarborough's An Obsession with HAM The Hindquarter.


Ingredients:
- 1 Full or Half Ham any rind removed.
- 1 tsp Sugar
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground allspice
- 1/2 tsp ground cloves
- 1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 of quality maple syrup

You will need a large roasting pan. preferably one that is strong, and shiny so as to reflect the heat back on the ham.

Set your oven rack high in the oven whilst still allowing 5cm of headspace for the ham.

Set the oven temp at 190C.

Mix the sugar, spices and salt in a bowl.

Rub the spice mix all over the ham, ensuring you've covered it's entirety.

With a basting brush paint the ham with maple syrup, leaving 2/3rd of the syrup in reserve.

Place the ham in the oven. You will bake the ham for the next 45-70mins (depending on the size of the ham and the heat of your oven). When glazing a ham it's all about colour and smell, if the colour is golden brown and it smells amazing you're done - there's no need to worry about doneness as our hams are cooked already.

At 20 min intervals, reapply maple syrup from your reserve, and also any liquid that has cooked down into the pan.

If you're finding parts of the ham are burning before others have browned then some crafty work with tin foil can be a life-saver. You can tent the ham loosely or rip off strips which can be pinned down with a clove!

Once your have your desired finish, transfer the ham to a carving board and be sure to let your Ham cool for at least 20mins before carving.

Our healthier take on Cacio Pepe, with the added goodness of greens! The brocollinni is taken to the point of being slightly charred, so it adds a real savoury flavour along with great texture to the dish. It's a dish that can be whipped up using mostly pantry staples and it served up in less than half an hour! You can sub the brocollinni out for any kind of veg and you could also add in some dry cured bacon for a little more richness.

In the spirit of spring, we've used our Slow Cooked Lamb Shoulder for some bloody tasty tacos! ​We prepared it with slices of orange, onion, dried morita chilli and cumin and then sandwiched it in a corn tortilla with a tomatillo salsa and cabbage. Using our slow cooked lamb shoulder has made what is usually a 3-4 hour cook, into a quick and easy dinner that you can even cook mid week!

Choripan is an iconic street food in Argentina and is such a simple sandwich, but absolutely packed with flavour. It involves cooking a fresh chorizo sausage until nicely charred and placing it in a roll which is then slathered with a bright, savoury oil of parsley, garlic and chilli.
