Ingredients
 

  • 2 kg gammon joint, soaked overnight
  • 2 carrots, peeled
  • 1 small leek, washed and cut in half
  • 4 sticks of celery
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 organic vegetable stock cube
  • 1 small onion, peeled and cut in half
  • 2 tbsp black peppercorns
  • 20 cloves optional
  • 100 ml stout
  • 140 g dark brown unrefined sugar
  • 100 g runny honey

Instructions
 

  • Place the gammon joint in a large pan.
  • Cover with water and bring to a boil; once boiling, simmer for 5 minutes, and taste.
  • If the water is salty, then discard and start again. If not, then add a little salt to taste.
  • Add the vegetables, herbs and black peppercorns. Turn the heat down and simmer for bang on 2½ hours. You may need to top up with boiling water to keep the ham covered.
  • Then turn off the heat and leave to rest.
  • Drain well and remove the strings, cut off the skin and score the fat.
  • Warm the stout, sugar and honey together until thick and syrupy.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180C Gas 4.
  • Place the ham into a clean non-stick tray, spike with cloves, pour over a little stout mixture and place in the preheated oven; bake for 15 minutes.
  • Keep spooning the warm mixture over the gammon until you end up with a beautifully glazed joint.
  • Remove room the oven and leave to cool slightly, lift off and place on a ham spike or clean large plate.
  • Serve hot or cold with relish and mashed potatoes.
