Method

 
Rinse gammon well under cold running water. Place in a saucepan large enough to hold it comfortably. Add vegetables, herbs, peppercorns and enough water to just cover. Bring to boil and simmer very gently for 2 1/2 hours. Leave to cool in liquid. Remove from saucepan and place on a draining board or other suitable surface. Cut off elastic net and peel off skin. With a sharp knife, score fat (not too deeply) in a diamond pattern. GLAZE: Mix ingredients and spread all over fat. Place gammon, fat side up, in a roasting pan. Bake at 180 ºC for 30 to 40 minutes, or until browned all over. Leave for at least 30 minutes before carving. TOTAL KILOJOULE COUNT: 54 420 kJ (12 530 Cal). A portion: 2 720 kJ (625 Cal).
