Roast Fresh Ham with Cracklings 

Roast Fresh Ham with Cracklings 

Chef Reusing’s ham recipe calls for a fresh ham that she marinates in a garlic and herb brine before roasting for an extra boost of flavor. “I have made this often over the years, the first time in my (illegal) home kitchen for an Easter catering gig when we made the entire meal twice, timing it so that the second roast was perfectly blistered and crispy when we arrived back home with a car full of dirty pots and pans to have dinner with our own families. It goes well with wilted spring scallions, roast potatoes (basted in the drippings), lightly dressed spicy arugula, and beans in all forms,” Chef Reusing advises.
