Michael Lomonaco's Caribbean Jerk-Style
Roast Fresh Ham
1 (6 to 8 pound) fresh ham,
shank removed, skin intact
1 onion, roughly chopped
4 cloves garlic, smashed
2 whole scallions, roughly chopped
1 to 2 large jalapeño peppers,
seeds and stems removed
1 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons molasses
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
In a clean sink, wash fresh ham well with cold water. Fill sink
with fresh water and dissolve 1/2 cup coarse salt in the water. Soak ham, completely
submerged for 20 minutes, before removing and drying thoroughly. Refrigerate until ready
Place the onion, garlic, scallions, jalapeño, spices, vinegar,
oil in the bowl of a large food processor and pulse until finely chopped.
Make small well-spaced slits in the skin of the ham every few
inches. Rub the ham with the jerk seasoning and especially in the incisions in the skin.
Be sure to use plenty of the jerk paste to ensure a boldly seasoned roast.
Set the ham on
a platter and marinate overnight, covered and refrigerated. Reserve any remaining jerk
Preheat oven to 325 degrees [F].
Place the ham in a large roasting pan, place in the oven and roast
to 2 1/2 hours or until the internal temperature reads 165 degrees at its thickest
part at the bone. If the ham browns too rapidly tent it with
aluminum foil. Remove and let
rest for 20 minutes before serving.
Yield: 10 to 12 servings
