Slow Cooker Gammon

This is super easy peasy! Just thought I would share my way of doing it.

If you don’t have a slow cooker you can go do it in a casserole dish in the oven.

You will need:

  • Gammon
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Carrot
  • 1 Apple
  • 1 tsp Sage
  • 2 Bay Leafs
  • 1 tsp Peppercorns
  • 1 tbsp Honey

I always get the same Gammon joint from Morrisons as it has all fat removed already which makes my life easier and I’m ALL for an easier life!

Chop the Onion, Carrot and Apple up nice and chunky.

Pop into the slow cooker/casserole dish with all the other ingredients and then the Gammon on top.

Add water to cover the lot!

Then pop a lid on and cook on low for 6 hours!

If you are using a casserole dish, about 120 in the oven for 3-4 hours.

Remove from the stock and then strain the stock and refrigerate. I always save the stock and have a Risotto within a couple of days using the stock and any leftover Gammon… which is seriously nice and delicious with Peas and lots of Parmesan!

Slice the Gammon up and that’s it!

My favourite ways to have it is the classic Ham, Egg and Chips, or in a Risotto but it is also lovely to just have in the fridge to pick at!

Hope you like it!
