Is gammon a meat? I have a slow cooker pot roast recipe that calls for onion soup mix and coke. It is awesome!
yes, bring on the kitchen diva
Thanks Brit, I'd like a recipe if that's ok Can't seem to find one through the net. I was interested in what went on as the glaze particularly.
Yes, I put it in a very hot oven for about 10 mins if it's still warm from boiling. If I've let it cool down it's about half an hour. I glaze it with with a tbs black treacle, then rub on 2 tsp mustard powder and 2 tbs demarara sugar, and of course pop the cloves in.
I will be doing the ham in coca cola. Do it every year. We will have it Boxing day with some corn bread. Yummy.
2.25- 2.75 kg boneless mild cure gammon
16 whole cloves
3-4 tablesp cherry jam
approx 6 cans cherry coke
1 teasp smoked paprika
1/2 teas red wine vinegar
soak ham overnight or bring to boil and then ditch water, rinse ham
put snugly into large saucepan -tight fit so use less coke.
add cherry coke and onion, halved -cover ham with coke or top up with water to cover
cook for approx 2-2 1/4 hours
preheat oven to 230c
strip off rind and a little of fat, score in a diamond pattern stud each diamond with a clove
put jam, paprika adn red wine vinegar into a saucepan and whisk over high heat-bring to boil -let it bubble away to syrupy consistency
sit ham on foil (to save washing up and pan!) pour glaze over and put in over for approx 15 mins or until glaze has caught. Rest before carving
When I was a kid Mom's work used to give everyone one of those canned hams. hey, when you've got 5 kids to feed, it came in handy... She'd poke holes in the top of the can, she'd dump in a can of Coke or Seven Up and then she'd spread peanut butter over the top. The peanut butter would melt down over the ham and it would cook in the soda. It tasted pretty good to a kid!
