AT A GLANCE
This is a twist on the traditional pairing of pea and ham - a more festive, summer version. It's also a great way to use leftover ham if you don't want to cook a leg just for this dish.
|01||Preheat oven to 180C. For Sherry vinegar, quince and mustard glaze, combine ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat with 100ml water and stir frequently until a thick glaze forms (6-8 minutes). Remove from heat and set aside.|
|02||Gently peel back the skin of the ham from the leg to the shank being careful not to tear the fat. Use a sharp knife to score the skin around the shank then remove it in a single piece and reserve. Score the fat diagonally across the leg at 2cm intervals and repeat scoring in the opposite direction to create a diamond pattern. Place ham in a roasting pan, brush with glaze, pour in 1cm water and roast, basting occasionally, until deep golden and warmed through (50 minutes to 1 hour). Set aside to cool slightly. Cut roughly 12 thick slices and coarsely chop. Leftover ham will keep for a week covered in the fridge.|
|03||Blanch sugarsnaps and snow peas until bright green (30 seconds to 1 minute), drain and refresh, and drain again. Blanch peas until bright green, drain and refresh, and drain again. Combine in a large bowl with herbs, add ham, olive oil and Sherry vinegar, season to taste and serve topped with snow pea tendrils.|
Note A picnic ham is smaller than a regular ham. Order it ahead from you butcher.
