  • 1kg Gammon Ham joint (unsmoked preferably)
  • 1l Ginger Ale
  • 1 large Onion
  • 1 Orange
  • 1/2 Star Anise
  • Sweet Chilli dipping sauce
  • 1 Red Chilli
  • 1 Green Chilli


    1. Peel and slice the onion into 4 quarters and put in a large pan or oven dish large enough to take the ham.
    2. Using a vegetable peeler, slice the peel off the orange and add to the pan along with the star anise.
    3. Place the ham on top of the ingredients and pour over the ginger ale.
    4. Bring to the boil then simmer on a low heat for 3-3.5 hours.
    5. Whilst the ham is cooking chop the red and green chillies into small pieces.
    6. Remove the ham from liquid and drain for a few minutes allowing to cool before cutting any skin off but leaving a thin layer of fat.
    7. Score the fat with a knife and smother the ham in the sweet chilli sauce and sprinkle with the chopped chillies.
    8. Cook in the oven for about 45 minutes at gas mark 6 / 200 degrees Celcius / 400 degrees Farenheit.
    9. Remove from the oven and allow to rest before carving.
