I don’t know if anyone else does this but I have a habit of seeing something I want to do and then storing it in my head for months. Then it runs out of season/availability and I’m loathed to buy artificial tasting raspberries or strawberries. Or, perhaps, worse, I run out of free time to do them!
But this weekend is different. Apart from a couple of hours at a wedding fayre on Sunday morning, I’m free all weekend. It feels good to say that! After a shocker of a week at work and the good couple of hours mental preparation it will take for Sunday morning (Chair covers! Flowers! Table Favours! Balloons! Doves! Aargh!) comfort food is definitely in order!
A quick deep dig into that head storage and I’ve pulled out something I have wanted to try for a long time. It’s a Nigella recipe so I thought I would enter it into Forever Nigella that is being hosted by Sarah at Maison Cupcake. Ham in Coca-Cola. You can find the recipe here.
Since there are only two of us, we opted for a smaller piece of ham, about 750gr. I used about 1ltr of coca-cola and half an onion. It took about an hour to cook in the pan then a 15 minute blast in the hot oven. It was really delicious and would definitely recommend it! The sticky glaze and the cloves make it perfect for the season!
