Gammon is a particular cut of ham that can be bought either smoked or un-smoked, on the bone or boneless. It's a sweet meat that lends itself well to all sorts of flavours, and the flavour is strong enough to stand up to all sorts of spices such as cinnamon and cloves. It's also fantastic served very simply after being boiled or after being roasted in the oven. Take a look below for some fantastic gammon recipes.

The sweetness of gammon means that it can be cooked using a variety of cultural styles, such as traditional British, spicy Asian and tangy European. It takes on other flavours well and you can pretty much cook it however you like, although it is particularly delicious slow-cooked as it practically falls off of the bone.
