Pomegranate molasses is the key to this recipe. It adds a sweet tart flavor that I prefer over the super sweet glazes often found on holiday hams. I grind whole black peppercorns in a mortar to add extra bite, and for additional flavor I use a smoked ham. Serve the meat with Dijon mustard, cornichons and extra glaze as condiments for a nice rustic presentation.
