Product Description

  • Unsmoked Wiltshire cured gammon joint with added water.
  • Tesco Finest gammon comes from outdoor bred pigs, which give tasty and succulent pork. Our experts cure the meat by steeping it in an aged Wiltshire brine for a distinctive salty taste before air drying it to develop the texture.

Absolutely fabulous, ooh la la, yum..

5 stars

Soaked overnight, roasted for 1.5 hours, glazed with Engish mustard and dark brown sugar for about 1.5 hours. Absolutely fabulous, ooh la la, yum. And half price, what is not to like?

Good, tasty gammon.

4 stars

Delivered 14/3/2020: A very good cut of meat. I soaked it overnight, but I think there was no need for it because it wasn't salty at all, I tasted the water after soaking and it wasn't salty at all. It surprised me that nothing was written on the label about preparation. I would buy it again, in the hope that the future batches will be of the same quality.

Fantastic ham

4 stars

Was a bit worried as I read previous reviews. Was my first attempt at preparing ham for Xmas. Bought the gammon joint as it was good value. Did not have a clue what to do. Followed others suggestion and soak overnight. Found a very interesting recipe for glaze but did not have 3 hours for the boiling. Had a brainwave why not put it in pressure cooker. As I have a large one pot seems the obvious way. Set it for 60 mins and left it. Result a superb joint done to perfection. Baked for 30 mins for the glazing. Only criticism did not have instructions on package.

SALTY SALTY SALTY MADE ME FEEL ILL

1 stars

I have today just cooked this as per instructions. I was looking forward to eating a slice but it was so salty its was worse than swallowing sea water. I think this would make us ill if we ate this much salt. If this needed to be soaked first it should of said so in the instructions. This was a complete waste of my money and has ruined our Christmas Eve meal. I expect much better from you Tesco. A very disappointed customer

Don’t bother.

As previously stated this gammon joint is far too salty. I usually soak then boil a gammon joint, been doing it that way for many years, but thought that I would buy a Finest joint and follow the instructions to roast it. There’s no mention of soaking so I assumed that it wasn’t necessary. The joint has taken longer than detailed to cook, used a meat thermometer to check, and I am now trying to rescue the meat by simmering it in a pan to remove some of the salty taste. I am an experienced cook and I have never had this problem before. What a waste of money.

gammon steaks have higher salt, so as gammon it ha

4 stars

gammon steaks have higher salt, so as gammon it has normal salt, if you want ham, you have to boil it for about an hour before you roast it,

Excellent gammon

5 stars

Excellent gammon joint, I can only think previous reviewers don't know that cured gammon needs soaking overnight and have also overcooked it. In cold water bring to boil then low simmer covered 15mins per 500g, let cool, lid off, until able to handle, skin off, glaze, 180 oven 30mins, easy.

Very disappointed. I thought when I bought the fin

2 stars

Very disappointed. I thought when I bought the finest range I would have quality. Too salty and tough texture

Not Tesco finest Fell apart and was tasteless.

2 stars

I wouldn’t call this Tesco finest!!! It doesn’t look anything like the picture and a large chunk fell out of the middle during/after cooking, making it difficult to carve and it is rather tasteless.

Very salty

2 stars

Very good flavour. Totally spoiled because of excessive salt. I purchase a small joint. Would have benefitted from being soaked in water. Maybe cooked in water. Good texture but disappointing.
