Product Description

  • Oak and beech smoked 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 then air drying it to develop the texture before smoking it gently with sustainably sourced oak and beech wood. TIP: Use leftovers with Bubble & Squeek.



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

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.

I used my nanas recipe for this. Soak the joint overnight in a large pan use boiling water.remove the string. Add your favourite seasoning. I used a quartered lemon,12 peppercorns,4 bay leaves. Empty the pan but retain the seasoning. Refill with fresh water and add the seasoning and a few extra pepper corns n bayleafs. Bring to boil n simmer for 1 and a quarter hours until tender.Take out and leave to rest till cool enough to handle. Strip of the skin n set aside to make crackling. Leave as much fat on as possible and score. prepare a glaze. I dribbled over a table spoon of honey, sprinkled with sugar, mustard powder, sweet cinnamon and studed in 6 cloves. In the baking dish ladle in 4 tablespoons of the cooking liquid. Roast in a bit oven until crispy n golden brown. If you want it more spicy add 5 spice to rub and a cinnamon stick to the boiling liqueur and more cloves. Delicious ham.

SOAK OVERNIGHT! To enjoy the tastiest gammon ever!

5 stars

This is one of the most delicious joints of meat I have ever cooked! BUT YOU MUST SOAK IT FIRST! TESCO DO NOT MAKE THIS CLEAR ON THE PACKAGING. After soaking overnight I cooked mine using the Hairy Biker's honey glazed gammon recipe. It looked and tasted wonderful.Not in the least bit salty. Fed two of us for days, 2 kilos.

Always delicious!

I actually wanted to review the unsmoked one, which I have been buying for years, but it has been taken off the site. But for those who have found the ham too salty - I always boil mine, after rinsing it. I find it doesn't need soaking at all. I also don't change the water. The ham stock (unsmoked) comes out perfect every time and is brilliant for making pea and ham soup without diluting it. I don't know why the instructions are so misleading, they should be amended before they ruin any more customers' Christmas!

Ignore the cooking instructions on the packet or on this site otherwise you will end up with very salty over cooked meat. Soak the ham preferably overnight in water. Drain and refill with fresh cold water. Bring to the boil and simmer for about 20 minutes. Drain and repeat this for another 20 mins two more times. Let cool and cut off excess rind and fat. Bake in oven at 180 degrees C (conventional) for 25 - 30 minutes. The end result is a tasty and moist smoked ham that has not been overpowered with the taste of salt.

Holiday Ham

5 stars

Second year buying gammon (our family calls it ham) from Tesco for Thanksgiving dinner. Easy to cook! First remove plastic and bring to A boil in water. Change water several times to remove some of the salt (at least 3 time or to taste) On the last boil you can add your favourite spice (we use whole spice - not sold at Tesco) secondly, after boiling make a glaze for the top using honey or brown sugar. Spread all over the top of the ham. We usually add cherries and pineapple slices at this point and bake in the oven.

Three lots of plastic used for wrapping and tying.

I found this smoked gammon really tasty. I have always soaked any smoked gammon in cold water for a couple of hours (With a couple of changes of water) before cooking . Which does remove some of the salt. If you don't like smoked perhaps you should try unsmoked, which I personally feel it has less flavour. Don't forget to cook your bread sauce to go with your gammon. Yummy. I have knocked off a couple of stars because very disappointed with all the plastic wrapping . 1. Green criss cross plastic on outside to make it look pretty ? Not needed. 2. Next sealed in plastic. 3. Plastic string to hold it together. Not needed. . What happened to good old fashion white butchers string?. Come on Tesco help save our planet. Shame on you. Family butchers on high street here I come. They don't wrap in plastic, and they use butchers string. Which will decompose.t

Incredibly salty. The cooking instruction state oven or microwave. I advise boiling this joint and change the water half way, or par-boil to remove some salt, then roast.

I know gammon is suppose to be salty but this was ridiculous. I was very disappointed as the label made it sound very promising. My Sunday dinner was a disaster.
