Ham Kebabs
Serves: 6
  • 1 lb 10 oz piece of ham
  • 2 level tsp cumin
  • grated peel and juice 3 large limes
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • vegetables and fruit for the kebab sticks - we used red and yellow peppers, zucchini and fresh pineapple but feel free to use whatever you prefer, or what suits your diet
  1. Cut the ham into bite-size cubes.
  2. Mix the cumin with the lime peel and juice and the maple syrup in a bowl just big enough to take the ham.
  3. Add the ham, mix well, cover and leave to marinate for 24 hours, turning every now and then so all the ham gets bathed in the marinade.
  4. Cut up the vegetables and fruit that you are using and string them onto kebab sticks with the ham pieces.
  5. Cook on a barbecue or under a grill basting with the remaining marinade.
