We bought a 1.75kg piece of gammon, simmered this on the hob for 75 minutes, then put it in the oven on a high heat for the last 20 minutes. Before putting in the oven, I took off all the fat, and smothered it with honey & mustard. The resulting ham looks and tastes delicious, and will last for a few meals. Remember - just 200g of pre-packed ham will be quite costly, and I believe this home cooked version is not only tastier, but much much cheaper! Our butcher has never failed to impress us yet.
Ham works out at around 1 calorie per gram, so make it your friend. It can be used in all sorts of dishes, and I'm even saving the stock to make a soup later (possibly pea and ham). I will freeze the stock after reducing it down, straining it and removing all the fat.
