Gammon and Ham: What's the difference?

Gammon and Ham: What's the difference?

The answer is – not much! Both of these delicious and versatile cuts are taken from the pig’s hind legs. Gammon is meat that has been cured (by being salted, brined or smoked) and sold raw, whereas Ham is meat that has been dry-cured or cooked, and is sold ready to eat. In a nutshell; when you’ve cooked your Gammon, it becomes Ham.

SLOW COOKED HAM JOINTS

Our Ham is slow-cooked for up to six hours to bring out the natural flavour of the meat. The crackling is then removed and the joint is lightly scored, before the a honey or festive glaze and cloves are applied. The Ham is then cooked for a little longer, to allow the glaze to ‘set in’ over the whole joint, then left to rest and cool.

Honey Roasted or Christmas Glaze Half (Serves 8-12) | £25 Whole (Serves 18-25) | £48
