This Posh-Jambon Persille with Gribche, or Pressed Jellied Boiled Ham with Tartar and Chopped Eggs, is an ideal recipe to make with your Christmas Day lunch leftovers.

1. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl, crushing the veggies and ham together.
2. Pour in cooled ham stock and herbs and set in a mould overnight. That’s it!
3. Serve with some pickles and a dollop of gribche on toasted bread.
