In the run-up to Christmas, be sure to leave enough space in the fridge for a beautiful, roasted ham done in my favourite style - cooked in ginger beer and glazed with a punchy, mustardy ginger preserve (thanks Nigella).
This Ginger Glazed Ham is the perfect alternative when we are all turkeyed out. I'll cook it most probably on Christmas Eve and it can then sit quite happily in the fridge as we pick away at it - maybe with some salads, perhaps with a few pickled onions. And if you get sick of the sight of it (as hard to imagine as that is), slice or cube the leftovers and freeze them in useful portions for the New Year. Makes me feel hungry just thinking about it ...Print
