  • 1 pinch salt
  • 4 ripe plums, halved and stoned
  • Wattie's Bit on the Side Oriental Plum Sauce
  • Plum Salsa
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh mint
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • 2 spring onions, trimmed and finely chopped


1. Carefully lift the skin from the cooked 100% New Zealand Pork Cooked Half Ham on the Bone. To do this run your clean fingers between the skin and ham and it will come away easily.

2. Using a sharp knife, score the fat in a criss-cross diamond pattern but only as deep as the fat level.

3. If wished, place a whole clove at the corners of each diamond.

4. Spread the ham with the 1/2 cup of Wattie's Bit On The Side Oriental Plum Sauce.

5. Cook in a preheated oven at 160°C for 40 minutes to glaze. To serve the ham hot, you will need to weigh the ham and cook at 160°C for 10 minutes per 500g.

Plum Salsa

1. Dice the plums finely.

2. In a bowl mix together the plums, spring onions, Wattie's Bit On the Side Oriental Plum Sauce, ginger and mint.

Season with a pinch of salt.
