does it need pre-soaking before cooking or is it not as salty as a gammon?

Nope. No soaking esp if unsmoked. Try cooking it in coke! Trust me! Google for loads of recipes fir this, namely nigella

I'd second cooking it in coke, bloody lovely.

Do you simmer it in a pot in the coke?

Do I need anything else?

Have seen nigella do it but it seemed a tad faffy.

I do mine in the slow cooker. Just chuck it in with a chopped up onion and cover with coke. I don't bother finishing it off in the oven.

Cheers everyone.I also do it in coke but have always had a smoked gammon& can be v salty which defo needs overnight soak. But baby is due today(no sign yet!) and diff to plan too far ahead. Thought of doing it in slow cooker with cider...yum!
