How to make ham joint easily?
In this recipe you will discover the simplest yet most flavourful way to make the ham joint! Whether you're cooking for a small family dinner or a daytime potluck, follow these easy steps for some excellent bites!
- 1 gammon joint, around 150-175g per person
- 1 bayleaf
- a few cloves
- 1 carrot, peeled
- 1 onion, peeled
- 4 tbsp marmalade
- 4 tbsp muscovado sugar
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
- Weigh your ham and calculate the cooking time; 20 minutes for each 450g, plus 20 minutes. Then work out the boiling/baking time by subtracting 30 minutes from the total. If you buy your ham from a butcher, ask if the ham should be soaked before cooking, if it should, put the ham in a pan of cold water, bring to the boil, then drain. Rinse out the pan and fill again with fresh cold water. If the ham doesn't need soaking first, and usually joints bought in the supermarket don't now, place it in the pan with the bayleaf, cloves, carrot and onion. Cover and bring to the boil.
- Skim off any white froth that rises to the surface then cover again and simmer for the required cooking time, minus 30 minutes.
- When the ham has been simmering for the required cooking time remove from the stock. Save this for soup. Place the ham on a plate. Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas 6. Mix together the marmalade, sugar and cayenne pepper in a small bowl. You can use light brown sugar or demerara sugar if you don't have muscovado.
- Using scissors or a sharp knife, peel off the outer skin of the ham, but don't remove any of the layer of fat that is underneath, you need this for the glaze to stick to.
- Place the ham in a roasting tin. I line this with foil to make cleaning easier. Tip the marmalade and sugar mixture over the ham and make sure all the surface is covered with the glaze. Bake in the hot oven for 30 minutes until the glaze is golden and slightly charred in places.
- Allow the ham to stand for 20 minutes, then carve and serve.
