Fruity Easter Gammon


Fruity Easter Gammon


1.5 kg unsmoked Gammon Joint
500ml bottle of Cider
2 red skinned eating apples, quartered, cored and thickly sliced
2 pears, peeled, quartered, cored and thickly sliced
75g pack semi-dried Cherries
3 Tbsp. clear honey
25g slivered Almonds


Place the gammon in a large saucepan and add the cider, reserving 3 Tbsp. Cover and simmer for 1 hour then remove the gammon from the pan.

Mix together the apples, pears and cherries with 2 Tbsp. of the honey and the reserved cider. Arrange the fruit mixture in a roasting dish and add the gammon joint.

Brush the gammon joint with the remaining honey and sprinkle with the almonds. Place in a preheated oven 180°C, gas mark 4 for 40-50 minutes, or until the gammon is thoroughly cooked. Turn the fruit occasionally. Loosely cover with foil if the joint becomes too brown.

Allow to stand for 10 minutes before carving into slices.
