Serves: 4

Metric Cups
  • 350 grams ham

Method

Ham Paste is a community recipe submitted by Coby and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Chop the ham in a food processor before adding the butter and mustard. Process it until everything is well combined. This will take less or more time depending on how soft (or not) your butter was to start with. It will eventually come together regardless.
  • Transfer the paste into single serve dishes, or one larger dish. Smooth over the top and, if desired, pour over just melted, clarified butter which will help prevent the top discolouring.
  • If you want to omit the extra fat, then simply press cling wrap onto the surface.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.
