- Ham joint of adequate size plus a bit extra
- Cherry coke
- 2 tbsps Cherry jam
- 2 tbsps Morello Cherry Brandy Liqueur 17%
- 1 tsp Raspberry Vinegar
- 1 tsp smoked Paprika
Put the ham into the tightest fitting pan you can find and cover with the cherry coke. Bring to the boil and simmer for approximately 2 and a half hours (for a ham for 4-6). Preheat the oven to 200C.
Remove the ham from the pan after simmering and place it on a roasting tray on top of some foil and cut off any extra fat layer on the top, leaving just a thin layer. Score diamonds into the fat and stick a clove into each diamond.
To a saucepan add the cherry jam, Demijohn Morello Cherry Brandy, the Demijohn Raspberry Vinegar and the smoked paprika. Stir over a high heat constantly until the glaze thickens. When ready, pour over the ham, and roast in the oven for 20-30 minutes. Let it rest before carving.
The author recommends that this goes particularly well with a glass of Morello Fizz.
