Dreadful - so tough it was unedible
Can I give it 0 or -1. At 1hr 20 I took it out to test (1.5 hours required). Took it out to test it - tough. It was so tough, I carved it (need my sharpest carving knife) - and didn't eat it. I normally have the ordinary smoked gammon, but there was none, so paid a premium for the Finest. Wish I hadnt bothered.
Very, very salty
Very, very salty
Truly revolting, I would give 0 stars if possible. Was like salt flavoured bubble gum. Really really horrible.

Following other reviews I soaked the joint overnight and next morning rinsed and soaked again for a couple of hours. Then boiled for half the cooking time and roasted for the other half. Delicious. Got two meals for 2 out of the joint. Downside crackling did not crackle so cut off and put back in over. Perfect.
Worth the extra
Lean meat, good value. Very tasty.
Really disappointing value
The taste of the cooked meat was fine, but really disappointed with the cost/amount of usable gammon. The item we had weighed in at just over 1kg (1.08 kg) but comprised mostly of fat and skin. Recommended to serve 7 however the joint only provided 420g of reasonable meat. We won’t be buying this item again.
Too salty. Too fatty.
It was reduced, so not as upsetting as it could've been. The rind isn't as upsetting as we don't like crackling anyway, but the fat needed to be scraped back and the the salt needs to be boiled out. Pity I didn't know before hand. I feel a bit ill actually.

This was delicious. Soaked it overnight and baked following instructions. Disappointing that the website wont allow me to add to my basket anymore.

Following the advice of other reviewers I soak this ham overnight then boil it gently. I think its lovely, good hot and cold and freezes well.
