Serves 8-10, with leftovers.


• 3½-4-pound boneless leg of pork (fresh ham)
• 1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
• 1 tablespoon paprika
• 1 tablespoon dried sage, crushed
• 2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crushed
• 2 teaspoons minced garlic
• 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
• 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt or 1/4 teaspoon regular salt

Cooking Directions

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Brush surface of pork with oil.

In a small bowl, combine paprika, sage, rosemary, garlic, pepper and salt.

Rub herb mixture over surface of pork.
Place on rack in a shallow roasting pan.
Roast for 1 hour to 1½ hours or until meat thermometer inserted in thickest part reads 150 degrees F. (about 18-20 minutes per pound)

Remove from oven and cover. Let rest for 20 minutes before slicing.

Serving Suggestions
A boneless fresh leg of pork is a welcome break from usual holiday fare. A simple rub of dried rosemary, sage and other herbs lends flavor and a touch of elegance to this easy roast. Serve with Corn Bread and Sausage, Kale with Garlic and Bacon, and a flourless chocolate cake for dessert.
