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.

5 stars

The best gammon I have ever tasted Succulent and delicious.

Gammon joint far too fatty

3 stars

Tesco Wiltshire Gammons are delicious. However, he unsmoked joint is far too fatty and wastes a lot of meat. The fat layer is almost as big as the meat.

Tasty gammon

5 stars

Really liked this. Good meat i.e. not too much fat running through, cooked well and easy to slice. Tasty. Did two of us for two meals plus a bit for a sandwich. Will buy again.

Too salty

2 stars

Cooked as per the instructions on the packet, unfortunately although the meat was tender the high salt content prevented enjoyment and dominated the flavour. May be better if soaked first

Delicious - Honey and Mustard recipe

5 stars

Really enjoyed it. I was concerned reading the review but I found a really lovely Honey and Mustard recipe on BBC food to cook it. I have cooked the Gammon a few times following the recipe and it tasted delicious and moist each time. I boil it initially as per the recipe on BBC food for a little while then roast it then let it rest. I like the fact the pig was bred outdoor. I really hope this is true for most of its life

Disappointing

2 stars

I often cook a gammon joint but was disappointed with this one. The fat was very thick & the gammon was tough & not a brilliant flavour. No one in the family enjoyed it. I will be going back to my butcher

awful

1 stars

Anybody hoping for a delicately flavoured Wiltshire cure joint is in for a serious disappointment, this is an chemically over cured piece of low grade pig, made even worse by a recommendation to roast at gas mark 5 in the hopeless expectation of some crispy crackling, if your shoes need re-soling you on to a winner, chewy and salty, it went in the bin.

waste of cash buy the ordinary gammon

1 stars

it was awful tough not finest

Disappointing

3 stars

I usually have the Finest Honey roast gammon joint but as it was unavailable accepted this as a replacement. I was disappointed with the huge amount of fat on this which was unlike the honey roasted. I cut this off before cooking and the discovered this joint was made up of at least 2 pieces again unlike the honey joint which is one. I have this 3 stars as the taste was beautiful. I won't be accepting thus in future

5 stars
