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


  • wholegrain mustard 2 tbsp
  • runny honey 1 tbsp


  • 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.
