Not as lean as I would have expected
Not as lean as I would have expected for the price. It is a 'rolled' joint rather than a block of meat and there was a considerable amount of fat rolled through it. It tastes very nice once you have extracted the lean ham.
Should not have been 'finest'. Poor cut, visibly sinewy, like the narrow end of lamb shank.
This was no doubt the best gammon I have ever tasted. Absolutely delicious. I slow roasted it with honey and mustard rubbed over it, and used apple cider as the liquid. The meat was melt in the mouth tender, and I cannot wait to have it again.
Tasty and tender
I, too, am surprised at some of the negative reviews of this gammon. It was the most tasty, tender joint that we have ever had. Can't fault it in any way! I just boiled it, without pre-soaking, for two hours and it was delicious. Apart from the fat under the skin, there was no other fat to speak of either.
This is one of the best gammons I`ve ever had in many years of buying from all major supermarkets, and local butchers in Kent, Devon and Norfolk. The pieces I have bought have been much larger than this. Just check and try cooking times.
Do not buy
Poor quality for price. Very salty and tough even after long cooking in slow cooker.
Agree with earlier reviewer - this is far saltier than other gammons we've had in the past. I couldn't eat it.
I oven roasted in foil as I usually do. Unfortunately this piece was very chewy and not up to expectations!
There was so much salt in this product, I found it
There was so much salt in this product, I found it inedible.
you just cant get the staff these days
cooking instructions are wrong. It states quite clearly (Twice) to cook it at 170c fan for 30mins per 500 g plus 50 MINUTES. Then they tell you that it is 30mins per 500g plus 30mins. I can tell you since Tesco can not. It is 30mins per 500g plus 30mins
