Mustard and Ginger Gammon Ingredients

2kg boneless gammon joint (smoked or unsmoked depending on your preference)
2l ginger beer
1 onion, quartered
2 clementines (or satsumas)
5 cloves
2 bay leaves
2 tbsp English mustard
4 tbsp ginger syrup

Let’s give it a try!

Place the gammon in the slow cooker on low and pour over the ginger beer
Add the onion, clementine, cloves, and bay leaves
Leave for 6 hours, topping up with boiling water if needed. The gammon should be fully submerged.
Take out and leave to rest and cool down
Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees
Once cool, remove the rind off the gammon and score a cross pattern across the remaining fat
Mix the ginger syrup and mustard and brush half of the mixture onto the gammon
Roast in the oven for 10-15 minutes
Brush over the rest of the mixture and proceed to roast for an additional 20 – 30 minutes. If it starts to catch or smoke, cover over with tin foil or a lid. Keep basting the joint with the juices and syrup as you go.
Rest for 10 minutes before carving and serving with your chosen sides.
