Inedible due to salt overload

1 stars

Cooked totally according to cooking advice on packaging but this gammon was a waste of money, being impossibly salty to the point of being inedible and so was binned. It was also tough, dry and fibrous, despite being cooked in foil with added fat and oil added. I cannot understand why this joint was clearly "pickled" in brine and yet with no advice to soak it for a few hours before cooking, which may or may not have made any difference to the appalling quality, of course. If you read this review, avoid this gammon joint.

Far too salty - inedible

1 stars

Realise that gammon is salty but this was inedible due to the amount of salt, 2 mouthfuls and couldn’t eat anymore

GREAT TASTE

5 stars

IMPORTANT. LEAVE THE JOINT IN A SAUCEPAN OF CLEAN WATER OVERNIGHT TO DRAW OUT SALT - REPLACE WITH CLEAN WATER THEN BOIL. I PUT IN ONION, CORIANDER SEED, PEPPER AND GARLIC - TASTES FANTASTIC BUT NEED TO TAKE IT OFF THE BOIL THEN LEAVE TO STAND FOR AN HOUR

Awful, looks can be deceiving

1 stars

This joint was awful. It was as if it had been three pieces of gammon put together under one piece of fat/rind. Take the string off to remove rind and it falls to pieces. Disgraceful considering cost of joint. The meat was very poor quality. Considering Tesco's reputation for quality, this is way below standard. This is second time I have experienced this with gammon joints, never again.

GREAT GAMMON
