Slow Cooked Gammon

Gammon is a great staple to serve midweek and is relatively cheap. Even a small joint can feed 4 with enough scraps left over to add to soups or pasta. Most people think of poached egg or pineapple as an accompaniment but I love peaches.The sweetness cuts through the saltiness of the ham and they caramelise beautifully in the heat of the SC making their flavour more intense. This will be a family favourite I'm sure. Why not give this a try and let us know how you got on in the comments below. We love to hear your feedback x
