This dish of pork, beautifully glazed with maple syrup, is known as maple-glazed ham in the US and is perfect for a true feast. It combines richness, sweetness, acidity and a hint of spice for a unique, irresistible flavour. If you like, you can substitute honey for part of the maple syrup. Similar to the roast beef recipe above, the vegetables are added to the roasting pan together with the meat, and some of the vegetables are used for the sauce to give it its uniquely aromatic flavour.

For the sauce, strain the cooking juices from the roasting pan into a saucepan. Add a little of the roast vegetables and the other ingredients, then blend to an exquisitely aromatic sauce using a stick blender. Add a little stock if the sauce turns too thick. Carve the roast and serve together with the sauce and the roasted root vegetables to taste.
