A joint of bacon makes a great cold cut as a starter, especially with a fruit like quince.
A 1kg piece of back bacon, rind removed
2-3tbsp clear honey
2 quinces cooked as in the recipe above
Preheat the oven to 180C/gas mark 5. Score the fat of the bacon; insert the cloves.
Line a roasting dish with foil, place the bacon on the foil; spoon the honey over.
Roast in the oven for about an hour, basting every so often and adding a little water if the honey is burning. Remove from the oven; cool.
Halve the quinces, cut into slices and shred the slices into strips.
Slice the bacon on serving plates; arrange the quince on top.Reuse content
