If you’re going to make a gammon glaze, be sure to try this easy recipe that uses Port to make something really special. Use left-overs of this glazed gammon in sandwiches – if you have any! The gammon glaze gives this ham such great flavour, with a touch of orange zest for a hint of citrus. Move over pulled pork, this pulled glazed gammon is sweet, sticky and the perfect crowd pleaser. It takes a while to cook, but the slow cooking is worth it for the depth of flavour and tender meat that it gives you.


  • 2.5kg smoked gammon joint
  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 1 carrot, halved
  • 2 bay leaves
  • few sprigs of thyme
  • few black peppercorns
  • 500ml cider
For the gammon glaze:
  • grated zest and juice of 1 tangerine
  • 2tbsp port
  • 4tbsp redcurrant jelly
  • 1tbsp runny honey
  • 1tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tangerine, sliced
  • bay leaf, to garnish


  1. Put the gammon in a very large pan. Add the onion, carrot, bay leaves, thyme and peppercorns. Pour over the cider and add enough cold water to cover the gammon. Bring to the boil and simmer, covered, for 1 hour 30 mins (allowing 30 mins per kg plus 15 mins). Turn off the heat and leave in the cooking liquid for a few hours (this makes the meat lovely and moist, as well as easier to handle).
  2. Heat the oven to 200°C. Lift the meat into a roasting tin. Peel away the rind and score the fat in a diamond pattern.
  3. To make the glaze, combine the grated tangerine zest and juice, port, redcurrant jelly, honey and mustard in a pan. Heat to melt the jelly, then smother over the fat of the ham. Roast for 20 mins. Arrange the tangerine slices on top and roast for 10 more mins, until golden. Garnish with a bay leaf.
