  • 100g quince paste
  • ¾ cup golden syrup
  • 1½ Tbsp. sherry vinegar
  • 500g pears, thinly sliced

how to make it

  3. Remove the rind of the ham and cover hock with foil. Place ham on a large baking tray, and brush with glaze. Position pear slices on top of the ham so that they overlap each other slightly.

    TIP: for a golden-brown ham, re-baste with the caramelised cooking juices in the bottom of the tray!
