I had the idea to try this one for myself, after my Sister in law’s fiance cooked us a gammon in Coca Cola. I then found out that Bob Thornton, of Moremead had already done it.
Bottle of mead
Soak the gammon in water for a couple hours to remove excess salt.
Place the gammon in a pan and cover with mead, bring to the boil and simmer for a couple of hours. Top up the liquid with Moremead or water, if necessary, to keep the gammon fully covered.
Pour away the liquid.
Heat the oven to 180. place the gammon into a roasting tin, and score the fat.
Stud the gammon with cloves.
Roast in the oven for 30 mins.
Rest for a few minutes before serving sliced with crab apple jelly
