2. Make the melon and ham tapa.
Cut the cured ham into half, then quarters and fold until you have made a little bundle.

Cut the ham lengthways into two slices. Then place a sliced pear across and roll the ham around it. Place a watercress leaf halfway up a toothpick and skewer the rolled ham with it. Follow the same process until all the pear slices are used.

Just before serving the canapés (Tapas), drizzle a little olive oil  >K Canetera and lime or lemon juice over the fruit.



Ham in general and Teruel ham in particular, is highly nutritious and healthy.
