A delicious savoury recipe which can be adapted for any occasion and any sized joint. I used a 1kg gammon joint when making this recipe but I’m sure a larger household would be preparing a more generous sized meal, it is always a bonus to have plenty of leftover meats for cold slicing later, or kept in the fridge for another meal time.
Opting for the larger size of joint will allow for a little shrinkage during the cooking process too.
If you are avoiding sugars, I would drop the honey and sugar from the ingredients and instead use a mustard and butter glaze with additional rosemary sprigs if desired.
Honey-glazed gammon or ham can be a delicious addition to any special occasion where you are preparing a big spread of cold carved meats for your family and is also a really tasty dinner meal served hot with broccoli cauliflower cheese and baby potatoes for example.
The recipe is very adaptable honey glazed gammon or ham, cooked with or without sugar and with cloves or not, either way you choose to cook and serve the meat, you will have yourself a delicious ham or gammon joint to enjoy.
If the gammon is to be served cold, remove the joint from the fridge and allow to come to room temperature for 30 minutes.
