I got a gammon joint out of the freezer left of from Christmas and didn't think to pre-soak it and have put it in the oven - will it be awful??
left over (sp)
I have never soaked a gammon joint. Didn't know I was supposed to. All of mine have tasted fine.
I don't think there is as much salt in them nowadays. You might be fine, not alot you can do about it now
No it should be fine what I usually do is put mine in a pan of water, bring up to the boil and then chuck away and then either bake in the oven or boil in whatever stock I'm using.
I never soak.I normally do the same as Whitershadeofpale. Not always though, depends if I can be bothered
thanks - I nearly poisoned us by taking it back out of oven to soak! Then I thought about throwing it out cos it would taste really bad. Any ideas for a glaze?
I never pre-soak, just throw away the first lot of boiled water.I always use honey and wholegrain mustard for a glaze. Yum.
I have never soaked a gammon - couldn't be arsed.Just cover it with coke or cider and start cooking it.
I don't have any honey in or mustard but I do have coke - will diet coke do?? how much ish?
No, not diet coke
too late lol I used diet coke - I'll let you know what it tastes like
How was it JuJu?
