  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 1/2 lb ham
  • 1 cup brown sugar

Remove bone and flatten meat so that it may be rolled. If the leg is very fatty, a small  amount maybe removed. Score fat well and marinate leg for 12 hours in the orange juice, garlic, bay leaves, pepper and paprika. Line meat with ham slices, hard boiled eggs, prunes, bacon slices and sliced carrots. Roll meat carefully so that filling does not escape. Tie firmly with cord. Cover with brown sugar and 1/2 bottle of malta and cook for one hour in a 325 degree oven. At this point, turn the meat, cover with the remaining malta and cook for a further hour. allow to cool and cut into fine slices. Serve with apple or orange sauce.
