This magnificent roast, featured in “The Wonders of Ham” (SAVEUR, December 2009), is simmered in beer before it’s baked—a practice favored by cooks in Savannah, Georgia. As with any country ham, this preparation calls for soaking the ham (in this case, in both water and brewed black tea) before cooking it, to remove excess salt.
This feast-worthy dish, based on a recipe in Pork & Sons by Stéphane Reynaud (Phaidon, 2007), calls for fresh ham, a succulent cut from the pig's hind leg that yields crisp skin and juicy meat. If cooking for a larger crowd, roast a whole fresh ham instead of just the shank end, and double the ingredient quantities for the glaze.
This recipe is based on one from Gunilla von Heland, a food editor in Stockholm. We found that steeping the saffron in vodka helps boost the flavor of the spice throughout the cake.
The decorative edges for these Swedish fritters are traditionally shaped with a fluted pastry wheel; for smoother edges, use a pizza cutter.

The Swedish name translates as fruitcake, but this light cake is only distantly related to the dense, sticky fruitcakes familiar to many Americans.
These bite-size snacks consist of rolled-up chickpea-flour pancakes strewn with mustard seeds, cilantro, and fresh coconut.
The New York City–based cookbook author Zarela Martinez gave us the recipe for this smoky, Coca-Cola-glazed ham (see "The Wonders of Ham" in SAVEUR's December 2009 issue). To cut slices of fresh pineapple into perfect circles, use a 3" round cookie cutter to trim the outer edges of the slices and a 1" round one to cut out the center.
Creamy yogurt with okra is a delicious pairing.
