Microwaverina's picture
  White wine vinegar 45 Milliliter (45 Milliliter)
  Shallots 2 , skinned and finely chopped
  Peppercorns 6 , lightly crushed
  Juniper berries 6 , lightly crushed
  Vegetable oil 30 Milliliter (2 Tablespoon)
  Smoked ham slice/Cooked ham slice 4 (1 Centimeter / 1/2 Inch Thick)
  Dry white wine 1⁄4 Pint (150 Milliliter)
  Double cream 1⁄4 Pint (150 Milliliter)
  Butter/Margarine 1 Ounce (25 Gram)
  Finely chopped fresh tarragon/Parsley 1 Tablespoon (To Garnish)

1. Put the vinegar into a small ovenproof glass bowl with the shallots, peppercorns and juniper berries. Microwave on HIGH for 3-4 minutes until boiling and reduced by half. Remove the vinegar mixture from the oven and set it aside.
2. Preheat a large browning dish to maximum according to the manufacturer's instructions, adding the oil for the last 30 seconds. (Or, put the oil in a shallow ovenproof dish and microwave on HIGH for 1-2 minutes until hot.)
3. Without removing the dish from the oven, place the slices of ham in the hot oil and microwave for 2 minutes, turning over the ham after 1 minute. Remove the ham from the dish and place it on a warm serving dish, then cover and keep it warm. (If necessary, cook two slices of ham at a time.)
4. Stir in the wine and microwave on HIGH for 5 minutes, until boiling, stirring frequently.
5. Strain the reduced vinegar into the sauce. Stir in the cream and season to taste. Microwave on HIGH for 3-4 minutes until the sauce is very hot but not boiling. Cut the butter into small pieces and stir them quickly into the sauce to give it a glaze.
6. Pour the sauce over the ham and then serve it sprinkled with tarragon or parsley to garnish.
