I have been buying the unsmoked gammon joints. They have been really good. Shopped in the week and bought the smoked as it was all they had. It tastes of nothing and its more like a processed joint. When cooked there is an outer hard surface there was not fat on the outside. The bacon was smooth nothing like a gammon joint. I would not recommend and will never buy a gammon joint from Tesco again
Good for price.
I have found the quality on some cheaper Tesco meats to be variable at best, but this has never disappointed. For families on a budget, this is great value, and with a little imagination, can be used as the base for a cheap and nourishing meal. My own favourite is Campfire stew.

I boiled it then roasted it with marmalade. It was tender, juicy and delicious.
Great value my wife and I are in our sixtys, we cook this in our clever chef with all the veg for Sunday lunch. Monday we have sandwiches with a few chips and Tuesday I make carbonara.
Processed mushed meat like a frankfurter sausage.
I cannot believe I bought this mushed up gammon processed meat formed like a large frankfurter sausage , not smoked , never again.
Excellent value for money.
Quality really good at such a reasonable price. Delicilous hot but excellent cold in salad or sandwiches. First hot shared with family, six helpings. Then in a pasta, two servings. Then cold in a salad two servings plus a few sandwiches on another day. My only problem is that I can't actually pick the joint myself, I would have selected as lean a joint as I could find. The joints selected were good & very little waste as you can see. I will continue to buy.
Rubbery texture, little taste
The saltiness reported by several customers is easily dealt with by boiling the joint after the wrapping has been removed. But the texture after cooking is bizarre. Instead of a proper joint's distinct muscle fibre structure this is an essentially homogeneous, quite solidly rubbery mass. It seems to have been pumped up with collagen. Surprisingly little taste too. Edible, but not enjoyable.
SUCH A BARGAIN!
This is a brilliant joint! I decided to boil it for 1 and a half hours and slice it when it was cold, like ham. Oh my goodness, it was wonderful! My family said it was the best they've tasted. It produced about 675 g of ham, such good value.
Choose carefully some joints are quite fstty
Make sure there isn't much fat on the joint otherwise theres a lot of waste.
Very good value. Tasty joint and enough for a fam
