How to cook a Gammon ham
Start by washing off the gammon in chilled water to remove excess salt from the exterior, our gammon has a mild cure so no need to soak for an extended period as it will lose flavour.
We recommend a par boil then finishing it off in the oven for best results.
Place the Gammon ham in a large pot. Cover with cold water and add some aromatics such as 2 bay leaves & 10 peppercorns. Cover the pot and slowly bring to boil, reduce and simmer on low for 20minutes per 500g.
Pre heat the oven to 170degrees Celsius
Remove from the pot and score the fat in a diamond pattern and glaze liberally with the glaze of your choice, (we prefer a honey based glaze to balance the saltiness of the gammon)
Cover the ends of the gammon with Foil leaving the fat/ glaze exposed and bake in the oven for 30mins until golden, for best results remove once internal temperature has reached 63degrees Celsius.
Rest and serve hot or cold.
