One of the most special things to eat, a real show-stopper.
Our Saddleback Gammon is traditionally brine-cured and air-dried, creating a wonderful texture and flavour for a mouth-watering feast.
For our oak smoked Saddleback Gammon, we prefer a light fragrant smoke over oak chips, not too strong so that it enhances rather than disguises the stunning flavour of our Saddleback bacon.
As our pigs are naturally reared our Gammons may vary in size, shape and weight, however they will be a minimum of 6kg.
We recommend 3 portions per kg.
When your meat arrives simply pop it into your freezer.

Notes from the kitchen
Put the gammon into a large pan and cover with water. Bring up to a simmer then taste the water. If it tastes overly salty, remove the water and start again.
Once it is simmering gently, cover with a lid, or foil. (If you have a meat thermometer, the water should be at about 82°c). Simmer for 8 hours.
Check the gammon by putting a thermometer into the thickest part of the leg, but avoiding the bone. It is cooked when it has reached 80°c. Alternatively it should feel tender if you push in a skewer or small sharp knife.
Allow to cool in its own juice. Once it is completely cold, peel back the skin. Criss-cross the fat with a knife, and pour over a honey glaze. Put into the oven at 180°c for about 20 minutes.
