Gammon cooked in apple juice and honey – recipe courtesy of Romy Gill.

 

Gammon has the tendency to be very salty so I decided to try it with apple juice and honey.

 

Ingredients

– Unsmoked gammon joint

– 1 litre apple juice

– 3tsp light honey

– 1 white onion, sliced

– 3 bay leaves

– 6 whole cloves

– 8 peppercorns

– 1 inch cinnamon stick

– 1 heaped tsp garam masala

 

Method

Put the gammon in a large pan with the apple juice and the rest of the ingredients. Bring to the boil on a high heat before cooking for an hour on a low heat.

After an hour, turn the gammon over. Cook for a further hour, and check that the meat is cooked – you can do this by putting a skewer through: if it easily passes right through the meat to the other side, then it is done.

In an oven preheated to 200C, cook the gammon for a further 10 minutes with all of the juices, in order to brown the meat.

The left over liquid can be used to cook cabbage to accompany the gammon – it gives the cabbage a great flavour, and means that nothing is wasted!
