Gammon roast with side salads and stuff

When it comes to Easter feast with friends, first thing comes to my mind is some sort of roast. I think this is the best way to use up all the leftover preserves such as apple sauce or pickled beets for sides . That is if you are lucky enough to have any leftovers from last Autumn ;-).

This weekend we tried to roast a gammon. I was terrified at first as I have never dealt with such a big piece of meat. Luckily the recipe that we found on BBC Good Food website had really good reviews so we just went with that. Gammon pre-cooked in cola and roasted with honey and mustard glaze tasted amazing!

Unfortunately we did not have any leftover preserves. I made quick Lithuanian white salad instead! My favourite festive salad in fact ;-).
