  3. Make a trivet by roughly chopping equal amounts of onion, carrot and celery plus a cooking apple cut into wedges, a bay leaf, sprig of thyme and a few black peppercorns.
  4. Place the gammon fat side up onto the trivet, cover with foil & roast for 30 minutes per 500g plus additional 20 minutes removing the foil for the final 30 minutes cooking.
  5. Leave to rest for 30 minutes in a warm place before carving.

Poach:

  1. Weigh your gammon then simply cover your gammon joint with your chosen liquid, spices & aromatic vegetables, bring it to the boil and allow to simmer.
  2. Simmer gently for 20 minutes then an additional 20 minutes per 500g until tender & easily pierced with a skewer.
  3. Allow to cool in the cooking broth before carving or chill.
