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.



INGREDIENTS: Pork (90%), Water, Salt, Preservatives (Potassium Nitrate, Sodium Nitrite).


Suitable for home freezing. Ideally freeze as soon as possible after purchase but always by 'use by' date shown. Not suitable for cooking from frozen. Defrost thoroughly for a minimum of 24 hours in the fridge. Once defrosted use on the same day and do not refreeze. Keep refrigerated. Once opened, use immediately.

Unfortunately the joint I received was about 35% fat .. so unfortunately will not buy again

Dont buy!!

1 stars

Far too salty even after soaking over night! Couldn't eat it.

Smelt awful when cooked and cooled.

1 stars

We bought two in the half price offer, but when cooked it smelt awful, like a fatty off smell. We sliced it ready for the week but couldn’t face it and threw it away. Was there something dodgy about these joints as they were half price? I have heard that whatever pigs eat can reflect in how the fat smells.

Excess Fat

1 stars

27% of the total weight of my joint was the outer layer of skin and fat. Indeed, excess skin/fat not even attached to the meat had been left on the cut, presumable to deliberately ‘bulk out’ the joint. This joint should be renamed from Tesco’s Finest to Tesco’s Fattest.

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.


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,
