Not to our taste ,extremely strong flavour
Good quality gammon , I cooked it as all other gammon joints as usual. Info says a traditional smoky flavour and steeped in salt. I should have taken notice as it is way too strong for my family , we couldn’t eat it. It’s a shame , only our opinion though, not to our taste.
Tough as old boots
Tough as old boots. I find the cheaper joints more tender.
Far far too much salt in the curing
The saltiest gammon I’ve ever had (and I regularly buy gammon). Barely edible even after drowning it in a white sauce. Really disappointing considering I spent the extra money for the finest option
Great gammon joint
This joint is a perfect size for 3 generous portions. I boil it rather than roast, much more succulent. Just simmer for just over an hour with some bay leaves and peppercorns, then rest for 15 minutes, delicious! I buy this joint regularly and the quality is great. If you want a glaze, then roast with honey (and spices if you like) on a high heat for about 20 minutes after simmering for an hour.
I buy this regularly when it is available and have never had any problems. I don't soak it, I roast it in foil with the top open so it is self basting. It is always lovely, tasty, tender and moist. Yes it is salty but we like that! We have it with parsley sauce, brussels sprouts and mash or roasties and there is some left over for sandwiches or with salad so it is cost effective.
TOTALLY INEDIBLE - Call Centre processed refund
Bought 'Finest Smoked Wiltshire Gammon' for the first time & roasted it expecting a tastier flavour than boiling the 'Non Finest' cheaper alternative. The second part of the cooking instructions do state "for a milder flavour submerse in a bowl of cold water ........." Such instructions should be in a separate paragraph along the lines of 'if you do not want a very strong salty flavour it is essential that you first soak for a milder flavour by submersing ........'
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 overnig
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.
