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
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
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
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
it was awful tough not finest
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
this gammon was brilliant. do you only do it at xm
this gammon was brilliant. do you only do it at xmas. cant find it since xmas ' please get it in again thankyou
Lush every time!
We have been buying this for a long time and never fails to disappoint. The unsmoked version, is not salty at all (I don't like salt on meat, hence why we do not buy the smoked version) and we have slow cooked, boiled and roasted this joint and it never fails to deliver.
I soaked it overnight and cooked it in the oven in water in a lidded casserole dish. It cooked well and held its shape. I didn't find it excessively salty.
If you like your ham salty try this!
I hate to say it, but this was horrible. It was so salty it was inedible. I soaked it for a good few hours, changed the water twice and still overwhelmed with salt.
