CRACKLING HAM ROAST
This Christmas Coles will offer a traditional boneless ham topped with crispy crackling so it combines the best of both hot ham and roast pork with crackling. Accompany with red currant jelly, mango chutney and traditional mustard. The ham serves about 8 to 10 people. To cook, preheat oven to 240°C (220°C fan-forced). Remove ham from the packaging and pat dry with paper towel. Leave uncovered in the fridge overnight before cooking to dry out the skin. Remove the net and score across the rind, tie with kitchen string to keep a neat shape. Rub ham with 1 tablespoon of coarse cooking salt, place on a rack over a baking tray and roast for about 40-50 minutes or until the skin starts to blister and crackle. Reduce heat to 200°C (180°C fan-forced); cook for a further 1 hour or until the internal temperature reaches 60°C. Remove from oven and stand for 10 minutes before carving with a sharp knife.
