    Onions are endlessly versatile and an essential ingredient in countless recipes. Native to Asia…

  • 10 cloves, plus extra for studding

    The dry, unopened flower bud of the tropical myrtle tree family used to flavour a wide variety…

  • 1 medium gammon joint, approx 1.3kg
  • 1½ litre bottle ginger beer
  • 1 tbsp English mustard
  • 3 tbsp ginger preserve

Method

  1. Put the onion and 10 cloves in the base of the slow cooker then nestle in the gammon joint. Pour over the ginger beer then cover and cook on LOW for 7 hours until the gammon is tender, but still holding its shape. You can cool then chill the gammon at this stage if you prefer.

  2. Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/ gas 6. Carefully remove the skin from the gammon leaving a layer of fat behind. Score the fat in a diamond pattern with a sharp knife, making sure you don't cut into the meat, then stud the centre of each diamond with cloves.

  3. Mix the mustard and ginger preserve in a bowl, spoon or brush over the gammon then bake for 20 mins until golden and sticky. If roasting from cold you will need to add another 20 mins to the cooking time.

So very quick to make (less than 5 minutes to prep) and really delicious result. I glaze with a mixture of honey/mustard prior to oven baking. A staple in the house and always tastes great.

Thanks for your question. We would not recommend using diet in this recipe as the flavour will not work well.

What can you use as a substitute for the ginger beer?

Thanks for your question. Substituting the ginger beer does significantly change the recipe but if you prefer not to use it, you can substitute it for water. You might want to add in a couple of bay leaves and some peppercorns along with the onion and cloves.
