Method

  1. Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Fit the gammon, quite snugly, in a big, deep roasting tin or casserole. Reserve 150ml of the pineapple juice, then pour the rest over the gammon, plus enough water to fill the tin about three-quarters full. Cover tightly with a few sheets of foil, then put in the oven and bake for 4 hrs. About halfway through, check the liquid levels and turn the gammon.
  2. Remove the gammon and pour off the liquid. Cut away the rind and most of the fat, leaving just a thin layer of fat on the joints.
  3. Whizz the reserved pineapple juice, allspice, treacle, ginger, ketchup, sweet chilli and honey together to combine to a purée. Spoon all over the gammon and set aside until ready to serve (or, if you’ve made at home before taking to the host’s house, cover and chill for up to 48 hrs).
  4. To serve, heat oven to 200C/180C fan/ gas 6. Roast for 30 mins until hot and sticky, then loosely break into large chunks to serve.

Cooked this as the recipe for 4 hours, then the next day baked it in the BBQ for a Sunday lunch for 8. It made a delicious change to the usual BBQ fare and went down really well. Recommended!

Made this as part of a buffet for Boxing day family meal. Everybody loved it and I've had to pass the recipe on to all who ate it. Really easy to do, very tender, and full of flavour!!

I made this for my children and husband. We all really enjoyed it. Ridiculously tender meat and the sauce gave it an oriental taste. Kids said it was their favourite meal that week.

We really enjoyed this, used a very large piece of gammon, very tender and the sauce was delicious.

This didn't go well for me either, I liked the sauce but the gammon was not like pulled pork at all... shame.

Made this for Sunday lunch for 3 so used less gammon and adapted the sauce quantity accordingly. The gammon slow cooks beautifully and had a lovely Taste but when I added the sauce and cooked, it went very dry. My husband and I did not like the taste of the sauce either.

This looks delicious but at 8.3g of salt per serving it's a health risk!
