Slow cooker gammon recipe


  • 1.5kg gammon joint
  • 1 carrot, quartered
  • 1 stick celery, halved
  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 1 tbsp black peppercorns
  • 400ml dry cider


  • 2 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 1 tbsp runny honey


  • STEP 1

    Heat the slow cooker to low. Put in the gammon joint and tuck the veg around it. Scatter over the peppercorns and pour over the cider.

  • STEP 2

    Put on the lid and cook for 4 hours. Remove the gammon and cool a little. Discard the veg and cooking liquid.

  • STEP 3

    Heat the oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. When the skin is cool enough to handle carefully cut it away, leaving a layer of fat. Score the fat and sit the gammon in a foil-lined baking tray. Mix together the mustard and honey, and spread all over the fat. Bake for 30 minutes or until sticky and glazed.
