Instead of roast turkey for our Christmas meal, we had seafood. However, it seems a traditional here to also have a ham for the festive season.
With happy memories of his childhood in mind, Aussie Mate checked out various stores and butchers before choosing a rather large piece of meat for just three people.
Apparently, we also needed a “ham bag”. This was all new to me.
The ham has been delicious…
… heated on the barbeque with a fig jam and cider glaze, alongside pink eye potatoes,
… cold with salad,
… ham and eggs for breakfast,
… in a sandwich.
Guess what we have for dinner today?
I’m going to look at leftover recipes, ham and potato rosti, ham and pea soup, ham curry?
