After working all weekend I decided to have an easy day in the garden, and what better job in the garden than cooking. I had a 5.5kg joint of gammon from a big shop just before Christmas and never got round to use it. I didn’t do much prep this time round, focussing mainly on the cook as it was the longest cook I have done in a while.
This was the set up I had for the cook
Once the kettle was lit and up to temp (215F 100C) I put the gammon on for 9 hours, glazing every 1.5 hours.
The glaze was made from maple syrup and English mustard with a teaspoon of ground nutmeg, very basic I know, but wanted the practice before getting too adventurous.
The cook took 9 hours in total, the meat was gorgeous. Nice and succulent. I’ve got enough for about 4 meals including lunches, so will definitely get some more.
