Method

2 Hrs 20 mins
 

1 Gammon Preheat the oven to 160 °C and lightly grease a roasting pan with butter. With a sharp knife, make long criss-cross cuts in the fatty part of the gammon to form small squares.

Insert a clove in the centre of each square.

2 Place the gammon in a large saucepan and cover with boiled water. Bring to boil, reduce the heat and simmer succulent, tasty PORK for 1 hour or until done. Set aside the cooking liquid.

3 Put the gammon into the roasting pan with 250 ml (1 cup) of the cooking liquid. Lightly season with salt and pepper, brush with the honey and roast the gammon in the oven for 30-45 minutes or until golden brown.

4 Heat the meat juices in the roasting pan to reduce and make gravy to go with the gammon.

5 Dumplings Mix the dry ingredients with the water, stir in the oil (if using) and fresh herbs and knead into soft dough. Leave to rise for 1 hour or until double in size. Gently punch the dough down to remove some of the air, and shape into small balls.

6 Simmer the dough balls in batches for about 8 minutes (or until done) in the cooking liquid left over from boiling the gammon. Set aside in a warm place.

7 Glazed baby carrots Simmer the carrots in a saucepan with water and the sugar or honey for about 10 minutes or until tender but still firm to the bite. Set the glazed carrots aside in a warm place until serving time.

8 Slice the gammon and serve with the dumplings, the glazed baby carrots tenderstem broccoli and gravy.
