"Apple syrup is to New Zealand like maple syrup is to Canada. Inspired by its intense apple flavour I have married it with the spices that make up the classic French 'quatre epices' (4 spices) blend, which is used to flavour pates and other charcuterie. Together they give this ham a sensational deep golden and highly aromatic glaze. Left for a day or so, the flavour of the glaze works its way through the fat layer into the meat giving it a delicious taste." - Allyson Gofton
1. Using a sharp knife, carefully cut between the skin and the fat layer of the ham and when possible discard the knife and use your fingers to carefully loosen the skin from the fat. Doing it this way will ensure you have a smooth fat layer to decorate. Place the ham on a foil-lined tray.
A Champagne leg of Ham is one where the bone has been removed but the hock end bone remains. These hams are ideal for carving as you can slice evenly from the base of the ham leg.
"Just wanted to let you know that you folks have allowed my husband and I to send my Daughter and Son-in-Law the perfect gifts. We live in the US and they live in Auckland! It's very difficult, being so far away, to know what they might need and sending things they want can be as expensive to mail as to acquire! But everyone looks forward to having such wonderful high quality meats your company provides! Thank you so much for your terrific quality products and outstanding service!"
