Slow cooked Spiced Gammon.

You know those times when you have lots of people coming over and not that much time to cook? Well this is a recipe for that occasion. I actually cooked this the day before I had people coming and then I warmed it up in the oven the next day. It is perfect for Christmas and will not only be simple to cook but will make your house smell amazing. I cooked this before teaching Pilates in our home studio and everyone coming to class was sniffing appreciatively!

I must admit to not being a huge gammon fan, in fact I’m not a huge meat fan. So if I eat meat it needs to taste pretty good. This recipe works for me due to all the spices involved.

Not only is is good hot with roasted veggies, but also great cold with salad or for pulled pork.
