Christmas Ham in mulled wine recipe:

Place your ham in a saucepan of  cold water, bring it to the boil and then discard the water. Rinse the ham and put it into a cast iron casserole, along with a bottle of red wine, an apple, orange and lemon. Add a few cloves, a cinnamon stick, bay leaf and some grated nutmeg. Heat nearly to boiling, put the lid on the pan and cook slowly in a preheated oven, at 75º C, for 8 hours.

This is a normal mulled wine recipe, but I have omitted the sugar, which is unnecessary. The ham will taste and smell of mulled wine – just like Christmas!

With thanks to Alex Stewart for the inspiration.

    Which one of the twelve disciples am I ? Cant wait to try the ham . The aroma reminds me of my childhood Christmases and the heat of the kitchen and the excitement when the ham came out of the oven … the stuff of fantasies….
