This recipe is easy and full of flavor, and excellent for any Sunday lunch, dinner, Holidays or basically when you want.
One of the ingredients that I have loved to use was the Pine Honey from UrbanGrains.
The Pine Honey is very different from the normal honey and is great (for my experience till now) in cooking, specially in meat. It has a nutty flavor allied with a kick of sober sweetness, not the normal honey sweet.
In the case of this recipe, the Ham sometimes can be too salted (I washed the Ham) but still I don’t add salt and the Pine Honey will balance any saltiness in the meat, which will make it tender and savory delicatessen.
I did had a video… I did have loads of videos to edit but… Christmas didn’t bring me one new.
(I am currently searching for a new camera, if you have any advice please let me know).
Ingredients (for 6 people):
- 2Kg of Ham (or Gamon)
- 1 can of sliced Pineapple (without the juice)
- 1 jar of Pine Honey (get it HERE)
- Condiments in powder such as Garlic, onions, mixed herbs, a bit of Thyme and Cloves (in this case. we want the Ham to be “clean”, so powder condiments will help in the look when we serve).
- 3 Tbsp of Olive oil
- 1 chicken stock cube
- Start by making some cuts in diamond shape in the upper side of the Ham
- Place it in the tray that it will be cooked
- Pour in some water (as you can see in the 1st picture below, remember: it will be cooking for a lot of hours and it need to be moist)
- Add the olive oil and the chicken stock in the water (the meat will absorb it)
- Add the condiments and rub them in the meat cuts
- Add the Pine Honey
- And only in the final part, before gong to the Oven, add the Pineapple.
- Cover the Ham with aluminium foil and put it in the Oven, at 150C (300F) to slow cook for 4 Hours (For each 500gr of meat, you should cook at least for 30 minutes, so for this 2Kg is 4 hours of slow cooking).
