Spiced glazed gammon with chilli crisp roasties recipe


  • 1 orange
  • 1.7kg dry cure gammon joint
  • 1 star anise
  • 2 tbsp runny honey
  • 1½ tbsp chilli crisp (chilli oil with chilli and other flavourings)
  • 1kg peeled roasting potatoes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • vegetables or salad, to serve


  • STEP 1

    Slice the orange and lay the slices in a baking dish. Sit the gammon joint on top, add the star anise to the dish and pour in 250ml of water. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hr 30 mins at 180C/160C fan/gas 4.

  • STEP 2

    Take off the foil and score the top of the gammon. Mix the runny honey with ½ tbsp chilli crisp and spread it over the gammon. Put back in the oven for 40 mins. Meanwhile, cook the peeled roasting potatoes in simmering water for 5 mins, drain and toss in the olive oil and 1 tbsp of chilli crisp. Slide them into the oven beside the gammon.

  • STEP 3

    Remove the gammon and let it rest, turn up the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 for 15-20 mins to finish the potatoes. Serve the gammon with the potatoes and your choice of vegetables or salad.
