DIRECTIONS

  • The night before the gammon is to be cooked place it in a bowl of cold water and allow to soak.
  • This removes some of the salt and tenderises it a little bit.
  • Place in a large cooking pot, (make sure you have a lid for it), cover with cold water, add the onions and bouquet garni and bring to the boil.
  • Turn the heat right down so the water is barely bubbling and put on the lid.
  • Cook for 20 minutes per pound of meat.
  • Once the cooking time is up leave the meat in the liquour until cooled.
  • This stops it tensing up, and drying out, and makes it lovely and tender.
