AT A GLANCE
Leftover ham is the ideal stand-by for unexpected guests. Homemade peach relish, great cheddar and the freshest rye bread make these sandwiches much more than reassigned leftovers. Micro-cress makes a tasty and pretty garnish; wild rocket also works well.
|01||For peach relish, stir all ingredients except peaches and 60ml water in a saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves, season to taste and bring to the simmer. Add peaches, stir occasionally until just tender (5-6 minutes), then transfer to a jar and refrigerate until chilled. Relish can be made up to a week ahead and will keep in the refrigerator.|
|02||Combine mayonnaise, lemon rind and juice, and garlic in a bowl, season to taste and refrigerate until required.|
|03||Spread rye bread with lemon-garlic mayonnaise, then layer with ham and cheddar. Top with a spoonful of peach relish, season to taste and serve scattered with micro-chard or cress.|
