Why we love this
- NATIVE BREED
Our Saddleback unsmoked gammon is traditionally brine-cured and air dried to create a wonderful flavour and sublime texture.
This beautiful joint makes an exceptional feast, perfect fodder for gathering loved ones together.
As our pigs are naturally reared our Gammons may vary in shape and level of fat.
Please be aware the Topside only has a small amount of fat cover, due to where it is cut from. If you would like a fattier gammon, please select one of the larger joints (2kg or 3kg).
We recommend 5 portions per kg.
Free Range Pork, Brining Process - Salt, Demerara Sugar (Sugar Cane Molasses, Sugar) Preservative (E252, E250).
The night before you plan to cook your gammon, take it out of its wrapping and soak it overnight in a bowl full of cold water.
Fill a large casserole dish with water and gently bring the gammon to the boil. Discard the water, rinse and pop the gammon back into the empty pan and refill with fresh cold water.
Cut an onion in half, snap off a stick of celery, chop a carrot in half and submerge in the water. Add a few bay leaves and some cloves. Then place the pan back over a medium heat, bringing the pan to a simmer, while being careful not to boil.
Cook the Gammon for 55 minutes per kilo.
Once cooked remove the gammon from the saucepan and pop it into a roasting dish. At this moment remove the rind, score the fat and stud the gammon with cloves, orange peel and bay leaves.
Slather a good helping of our honey glaze over the top of the scored fat and pop the roasting dish into a hot preheated oven (190C) and bake for 15-20 minutes per kilo.
Your meat will arrive frozen.
When your gammon arrives simply pop it straight into your freezer.
If any of your meat has thawed on arrival it is safe to pop straight in the freezer.
How to Defrost
Simply, drop the items still in their individual packaging into cool water and wait for around 15 minutes until they are fully thawed. Once they have fully thawed, remove the packaging and get cooking.
You can also gently thaw any items by leaving them in the fridge for around a day, or at room temperature for a few hours.

How to cook a Gammon
The Christmas Gammon, is there anything more magical that brings so much joy with leftovers for days? Sneaking down in the middle of the night when hunger pangs strike and devouring a slice or two with a slither of a Christmas cheese and a generous dollop of a festive pickle.
