Festive season glazed gammon recipe

by Mars

One our favourite winter lunch and dinner options is gammon. It’s great on sandwiches, a quick nibble or the centre piece of a roast dinner, so we’re sharing our festive season glazed gammon recipe.

Gammon is very easy to make, it just needs time to slow cook. The full method is shown in the video.


  • 1kg gammon (unsmoked)
  • Two celery sticks
  • Two leeks
  • Two bay leaves
  • Vinegar
  • Cloves (for studding)
  • Splash of red wine vinegar
  • Mustard seeds (optional)

For the glaze

  • 50ml soya sauce
  • 2 teaspoons agave, honey or sugar (chose which one you want to sweeten with)
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar (or 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard)

Okay, help this Canadian out, please!!

What, exactly, is a gammon?

😀 Gammon is the hind leg of pork (when it is still in a raw meat state) and when boiled and baked is essentially ham. I thought it was a universal term. What is it called in Canada?

Honestly, I’ve never seen a cut quite like that. I’ve seen whole legs of pork available, in its raw state, but they are pretty massive, skin on, bone in. A smaller, fresh piece like that, I think would just be called a roast, here.
