  • Put the gammon joint in.
  • Pour 1 litre of the apple juice over, then the cider, now depending how full your pot is add more apple juice- but the make sure the gammon is submerged.
  • Bring to a boil and get rid of scum.
  • Simmer for 1hr and 20 minutes.
  • Turn off the ham and leave in the liquid until you need it.

  • Cut of excess fat and put the diamond Kris cross on the top.

    • Reduce the cooking liquid right down, add heaped teaspoon of grain mustard and a dollop of creme fraiche for a lovely sauce, serve with roast garlic & rosemary roast potatoes and season veg.
