Herb and pine nut-crusted roast ham

Adding the herbs after cooking gives the ham a really fresh taste. This is delicious served with a creamy potato salad.

You'll need

  • 3 tsp
  • fennel seeds
  • 2 tsp
  • coriander seeds
  • 180 gm
  • pine nuts, toasted, coarsely chopped
  • 1
  • easy-carve leg ham (about 7kg; see note)
  • 2 bunches
  • coriander, finely chopped
  • 1 bunch
  • flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • ½
  • preserved lemon, pith removed, skin washed and finely chopped
  • 1
  • lemon, finely grated rind only
  • For brushing:
  • pomegranate molasses

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Dry-roast spices, cool slightly, finely grind in a spice grinder, transfer to a bowl, set aside.
  • 02
  • Remove skin from ham (discard), place in a large roasting pan and roast until ham is warmed through (1-1½ hours).
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, combine pine nuts, herbs, preserved lemon and lemon rind in a large bowl, add spices, season well to taste and stir to combine.
  • 04
  • Brush ham liberally with pomegranate molasses, then pat herb mixture onto ham, pressing to coat well.

Note Easy-carve hams are available from your butcher but may need to be ordered ahead.
