We know a ham, cheese and pickle is a pretty hard combination to beat. But ham is not just about fantastic sandwiches – it’s also perfect for enhancing the flavour of other dishes and recipes. Ham can be smoked or un-smoked and some premium hams are cured using additional ingredients to create a truly unique flavour.

A thick, tasty gammon steak served with potatoes and green veg is traditional cooking at its best: simple, classic and really making the most of the taste of quality gammon. As with ham, gammon can be smoked or unsmoked and is sometimes cured using aromatic ingredients such as cloves to create a distinctive taste. Famed for its robust flavour, gammon is tailor-made for hearty, wholesome dishes.

When it comes to classic gammon recipes, you’ll no doubt think of slices of pineapple and maybe a fried egg, but there are loads of other great recipe ideas for your gammon joint that work all year round, whether you roast it or boil it, or enjoy it glistening in a sticky glaze, or beneath a blanket of breadcrumbs. So if you’ve never tried it before, give gammon a go.
