Ham and vintage cheddar sandwiches with peach relish


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.

You'll need

300 gm (1 cup) mayonnaise Finely grated rind and juice of 1 lemon, or to taste 1 garlic clove, minced 10 thin slices rye bread 10 thick slices each leg ham and vintage cheddar To serve: micro-chard or micro-cress (optional)   Peach relish 125 ml (½ cup) red wine vinegar 2 tbsp raw caster sugar ½ small Spanish onion, thinly sliced 1 tbsp finely grated ginger 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 1 small red chilli, finely chopped 3 peaches, cut into thin wedges

Method

  • 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.
