I have an unsmoked English gammon joint which weighs around 2 kg . I have looked up in various cookery books the exact directions how to do this and so far I have got about 10 different ways! I would like to know if it weighs 2 kg say how many mins per kg or per 1lb do I simmer it for ? Then after the simmering I know I should leave it in the water till it goes cold then there are various things i can then do to it to put it in the oven with eiter honey and mustard or sugar an d mustard and then roast it for once again different times! Also there are different things to put in the water there are different liquids to cook it in whether it is cider, cocacola or water or even just apple juice! So in order to get this right I nead someone who does this regularly as they will know what works!! Please could any of you out there let me know how you cope with a gammon joint for the best flavour?
