• STEP 1

    Melt half the butter in a large lidded frying pan. Cook the leeks over a medium heat, covered, for about 10 mins until soft, stirring occasionally so they don't catch.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, put the celeriac in a pan, cover with salted water, bring to the boil and cook for 15-20 mins until soft. Drain and roughly mash, then whizz with a stick blender to make an almost smooth mash. Stir in the leeks and the rest of the butter, season well and keep warm.

  • STEP 3

    Put the apples and cider in a pan. Heat for 10 mins on a medium heat, stirring until the apples have broken down, then stir in the mustard, some seasoning and the sugar.

  • STEP 4

    Heat the oil in the pan you cooked the leeks in and fry the gammon steaks on a medium-high heat for 3-4 mins each side. Serve with the mash and apple sauce on the side.
