  • 1kg (2¼lb) Good quality dry cured, unsmoked gammon joint
  • 150ml (¼pt) Red wine
  • 150ml (¼pt) Orange juice
  • 1 Mulled wine spice sachet
  • 1 Cinnamon stick
  • 45ml (3tbsp) Cranberry sauce
  • 2.5ml (½tsp) Cinnamon


Pre-heat oven to 180°C/Gas Mark 4-5.


Weigh the joint and calculate the cooking time:
20 mins per 450g/1/2kg (1lb) plus 20 mins.
(Allow about 1 hour for a 1 kg joint).

Double line a large roasting pan with foil, place joint in roasting pan. Pour over the red wine, orange juice and add mulled wine sachet and cinnamon stick.

Place another piece of foil on top of the tin and roast in oven for 1 hour. Baste and turn joint over half way through cooking time.

Remove the pan from the oven and carefully remove joint. Pour juices into a small saucepan. Add cranberry sauce to juices and reduce for 5 minutes. Remove rind from joint and score the fat. Return to the roasting pan, but line with foil.

Spoon some of the cranberry juices over the joint and then return to oven for a further 10-15 minutes until glaze is syrupy and fat browned.


Serving Suggestion

Serve hot gammon with roasted potatoes and parsnips and braised red cabbage with apple.

Additional Notes

As an approximate guide allow 100g (4oz) raw gammon per person for boneless joints and 170-225g (6-8oz) for bone-in joints.
