Wicks Manor English Smoked Gammon Joint 1kg

Product Description

1kg frozen

This product is cured and smoked and requires further cooking (see below). Think of the gammon as a large piece of utterly delicious bacon!

Fed a natural diet of wheat and barley (grown and milled on the farm at Wicks Manor), reared with best practice farming techniques, and an attention to animal welfare means UK nationally-recognised, high-quality, and great tasting pork for you and your family. These plump, succulent gammon joints are boned, cured in brine and smoked with an aromatic blend of oak and beech wood chips for a wonderful, full, meaty flavour.

Cooking: a gammon joint can be cooked by boiling or a combination of boiling and baking. Boiling: Place the gammon in a pan and cover with cold water, add cloves and a bay leaf. Bring the water to the boil, when the water boils, reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes per 450g plus 20 minutes (or until thoroughly cooked).

Boiling and Baking: Boil as above for half the cooking time, drain the joint and wrap it well in foil and place in a roasting tin. Bake for the remainder of the cooking time in a preheated oven at 180°C, gas mark 4 until thoroughly cooked.
