  1. Step 1

    To make the quince glaze, combine the quince paste, wine, vinegar, sugar and soy sauce in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring, for 8-10 mins or until the quince paste and sugar dissolve and the mixture is smooth.
  2. Step 2

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Place the ham on a clean work surface. Use a small sharp knife to cut through the rind 10cm from the shank. Run a thumb under the rind to separate from the fat. Peel back, sliding your fingers under the rind to remove. Use a small sharp knife to score across the fat at 5mm intervals. Brush the ham with some of the glaze. Wrap the shank in foil. Place in a roasting pan.
  3. Step 3

    Bake the ham, brushing with the glaze every 15 mins, for 1 hour or until the ham caramelises and is golden brown. Cool slightly. Transfer the ham to a large serving platter. Serve with the cheeses, fruit, crackers and nuts.
